Blazers vs Pistons Summer League Preview

Neither the Pistons nor the Blazers set hearts aflutter last season. It was a challenging year for both long-suffering fanbases. Nonetheless, there are genuine reasons for optimism for both teams.

For the Blazers, the excitement centers on Shaedon Sharpe, who will make his first appearance for the team. The team has craved a solid second option alongside Damian Lillard for years. Sharpe was the No. 1 prospect in the 2022 High School class, according to the 247Sports Composite Rating, and would seem to fit that bill with his tools and raw physicality.

Sharpe is a mystery wrapped in an enigma. While he has all the tools for a wing, Shaedon has not played an official game since his days at Dream City Christian School in Glendale, Arizona. Why? Kentucky head coach John Calipari preferred not to use him, assuming he was using the school as a direct stepping stone into the 2022 draft.

On the one hand, you have to be pretty talented to get picked no. 7 overall in the draft without playing a single college game. Conversely, it is a tricky jump from a Glendale High School directly to the NBA. So how will Sharpe handle it? After being drafted, the player seemed reasonably confident in his abilities and said, “I feel like I can become the best player to ever play the game.” Unfounded hyperbole? The answer may be the key to Portland’s future. Shaedon’s performance against the Pistons may give us an idea.

While Portland has many question marks, Detroit seems to have firm answers. The 2021 No. 1 pick, point guard Cade Cunningham, looks like the real thing. The Pistons expect him to combine with highly rated No. 5 pick Jaden Ivey to create the backcourt of the future. Unfortunately, Cade probably won’t see the court in Vegas, so we will not get to glimpse this intriguing combo firsthand. Nonetheless, Ivey’s explosive talent will be on display.
Detroit has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to young talent. The Pistons are trying to register both Jalen Duran and Gabriele Procida in time for the game against Portland. But should be available to play.

That is fantastic news because we want to get a first look at the 6”11 250 pounds Duran in his first professional game. The No. 13 pick has the tools to become a Bam Adebayo type of center. Meanwhile, Procida looks like the type of European shooting guard we have often seen contribute effectively in the NBA.

The talent is there for both teams. But we don’t know how it will all fit together? Vegas is our chance to get a first impression of these two fascinating teams.
