Haynes & Jaynes: Putting a Bow on Offseason
So quick question, what does this mean for the other Trail Blazer point guards?
Quick answer: Earl Watson: don't worry about getting a uniform fitted. You're going to be sitting behind the bench in your best three-piece suit every night. C.J. McCollum: yes, I know you're back at the rookie orientation but this transaction is perhaps more useful in understanding your new career. Welcome to the NBA, rook, your prospective playing time just got cut in half! And in spite of what may have been said publicly, it certainly appears that after watching McCollum in summer league, there was some degree of concern about his ability to play the point, at least this early in his career.
