NBA: Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Church of Roy podcast returned to discuss the addition of Larry Nance Jr. to the Portland Trail Blazers. In this rapid-fire session, hosts Brian Wilcox and Steve Dewald breakdown what they like about the three-team trade that went down. Both Brian and Steve agree that Portland emerged as the early winner. They also questioned the Cavaliers’ vision for their future frontcourt.

Along with evaluating the early winners of the deal, Steve detailed what Nance Jr. brings to the offense. As a long-time supporter of Draymond Green’s game, Steve is thrilled to have the former Cavs forward in the fold for the 2021-22 regular season.

In the second half of the show, Brian outlines the lineups he is excited to see Nance Jr. participate in. Both Brian and Steve credited Blazers President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey for a solid pickup. On paper, the Blazers have upgraded their flexibility for a postseason run.
