The 2023 NBA Draft is here! The Portland Trail Blazers sit third in the draft order, waiting to see whether Scoot Henderson or Brandon Miller will fall to them after the San Antonio Spurs select center Victor Wembanyama from France and the Charlotte Hornets choose between the pair just mentioned. Amen Thompson is reportedly a wildcard outsider for Portland’s pick as well. Then, of course, we need to see whether the Blazers are selecting for themselves or whether they’ll trade the pick.

It’ll be the most exciting draft night in recent memory for the Blazers and you get to ride alongside with all your Blazer’s Edge friends! This thread will remain open throughout the evening. The comment section is for you to have fun in. Please avoid swearing and trolling as you do so.

We’ll be around with updates and analysis during and after the draft! As you’re biding your time, here are our draft previews of Scoot Henderson, Brandon Miller, and Amen Thompson...near mandatory reading if you want to understand what’s at stake in the choice.

Have fun, and Happy Draft Day, 2023!
