Fab Four for Blazers
The Trail Blazers' summer league core group figures to be returning roster players Jake Layman and Pat Connaughton and 2017 first-round draft picks Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan.
How they're used will depend on Portland's coaches for the Las Vegas Summer League: Jim Moran, Nate Tibbetts, David Vanterpool, Dale Osbourne and John McCullough.
Portland's entry will begin a four-day camp on July 4 at the team's Tualatin practice facility, then open in Vegas on Saturday, July 8 against Utah.
Others on the summer roster for the Blazers: guards Jordan Adams, Markel Brown, Antonius Cleveland, Jorge Gutierrez, R.J. Hunter, Nick Johnson and Patrick Miller; forward DeAndre Daniels and Josh Scott; and center Keith Benson.
The Blazers have listed Collins, a 7-footer picked 10th out of Gonzaga, as a center.
