Sometimes the NBA Summer League can bring out some old faces and in the case of the Portland Trail Blazers, they’ve attracted the interest of Beaver Nation by adding former Oregon State stand-out Langston Morris-Walker to their 2018 Las Vegas NBA Summer League.
Morris-Walker, now 24, will be competing for playing time on a deep and talented roster, that includes Portland forwards Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan, the team’s first round pick (and man of mystery) Anfernee Simons and a host of NBA mainstays including K.J. McDaniels and Archie Goodwin. It is unknown how much Morris-Walker is expected to see the court.
During his four years in Corvallis from 2012-2016, the Berkeley, California native averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 rebounds per game, as a role player for the Beavers under both head coaches Craig Robinson and Wayne Tinkle.
The league will begin play on Saturday (July 7th) in Sin City and the Trail Blazers first contest is scheduled for Saturday at 12 PM PT against the Utah Jazz. The game will be televised on NBA TV.
