It’s an all new mail bag on the Jacked Ramsays podcast! Hosts Danny Marang and Brandon Sprague return to tackle your burning questions about the Trail Blazers.
This week, listeners wanted to know all about training camp invitees. Guard Dennis Smith Jr. and Marquese Chriss are both former lottery picks that are eyeing a roster spot for this upcoming season. Which player should Portland look to add? Why aren’t they currently rostered? Could the Blazers invite a third or fourth player to camp? Finally, do you believe these are the final moves that the Blazers will make before the season?
If you don’t believe this is the last move, Danny and Brandon have you covered. They take on multiple questions about the possibility of swapping Ben Simmons for CJ McCollum. What is keeping that deal from happening? Is it Daryl Morey and the 76ers, or have the Blazers kept McCollum off the table? What would it take for it to come together? Will we see Simmons pursue the path of James Harden last year and flaunt his power at Morey and the 76ers, forcing them to take the best offer on the table? Can the 76ers wait it out until they believe they have more leverage?
