The Blazers have traded 2nd year PF Caleb Swanigan to the Sacramento Kings for big man Skal Labissiere. Swanigan, the 6ft 9 PF  out of Indiana played in 45 games for the Portland Trail Blazers averaging 2.1 points, and 2.4 rebounds. He couldn’t crack the rotation and played most of his minutes in garbage time, or in the G league. He was drafted #26th in the 2017 draft.

Labissiere played in 106 games for the Sacramento Kings, averaging 8 points and 4.5 rebounds a game. He is a 36% 3 point shooter, and offers the Blazers a slight upgrade. He is young and fits well with the Blazers. If he finds minutes, he can help on defense, and in offense in transition.

    His debut in Philly was a first step and as you say he needs minutes. I would like to see him in a capacity to be in a game when we are down double digit and need 36% 3pt shooter.
