Portland Trail Blazers News – 2013 Trail Blazer Updates
The Portland Trail Blazers continue to rebuild around 2-time All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge and 2013 Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard. Second-year coach Terry Stotts looks to improve on the team’s 2012-13 record of 33-40 and challenge for a playoff berth. With the additions of former top-5 pick Thomas Robinson and rookie 2013 first round draft pick CJ McCollum, the team managed to add young talent to its already promising core. Veteran free agent big-man Robin Lopez and sharpshooter Dorel Wright should also be important pieces this season. Amidst speculation surrounding Aldridge’s discontent in Portland, the Blazers may need to show improvement early in the season
to keep Aldridge happy and off the trading block.
