Blazers GM: 'Josh Hart is a keeper'

- by

If you want an idea of how interim general manager Joe Cronin wants the Trail Blazers to look like next season, tune in to the next game and focus on No. 11. That’s Josh Hart, the newly acquired wing who has been so good, so versatile and so competitive since arriving in Portland that Cronin wishes he could clone him. “He’s a keeper,” Cronin told The Athletic. “Josh embodies what we are trying to build here. The talent level, the skillset, the competitiveness, the IQ, the defensive-minded, guard-anyone approach. His ability to make others better, to make shots, push the ball.”

Brian Windhorst on Pelicans: ‘They’re pretty active looking to buy even though they’re outside of the top 10 right now. Maybe they won’t be able to buy but it won’t be for the lack of trying. Because from what I understand they got this whole portfolio of draft picks, including the top-10 protected Lakers’ pick. (…) And they have made Josh Hart available.’ -via Apple Podcasts / February 5, 2022
