Lumberjacks Swap 33s
- By Tim Wallis, Day 1, 2021
PORTLAND - The Lumberjacks have further strengthened their position in the 2021 draft, sending next year's 2nd rounder (set at #33) for this year's 33rd pick.
The deal gives Portland picks 8, 23, 33, 38, 45, 53, 58 and 63.
"We've probably got more picks than we need at this point," confessed Portland GM Tim Wallis. "But there are players around that range that we'd love to pick up and we consider that pick to be more valuable this year than next, considering how many spots we have to fill."
The Lumberjacks may not be done, as they have made it known that they are willing to package some of those picks in order to perhaps improve their earlier pick position.
