Today’s episode of the Jacked Ramsays features plenty of discussion regarding the Trail Blazers’ acquisition of Larry Nance Jr. from the Cavaliers. Host Danny Marang details his grade for the move and dissects how it will impact the rest of Portland’s roster. Is adding Nance Jr. enough to make star guard Damian Lillard “happy” with the Blazers’ current arc towards contention? Is this a trade that “moves the needle” for Portland?

When it comes to the action on the court, Danny examined the types of lineups that Lance Jr. might be featured in. Is he a four or a modern five? Or will he see time at every frontcourt position? Nance Jr. might be the key to unlocking several lineups that align with the modern NBA.

Looking back, how does Nance Jr. stack up against long-rumored trade target Aaron Gordon? What are the differences and similarities in their respective games? Finally, Danny discussed the potential for Nance Jr. to become a fan favorite.

It’s all Nance Jr., all the time. Fire up your Fall Out Boy album, because it’s time to “Nance, Nance” your way into oblivion.
