1)      Instant Offense

Muhammad is the definition of a pure scorer. His offensive instincts are perhaps the most developed of this year’s draft prospects. He is fantastic in late game situations and knows how to rack up points. The Blazers had the worst scoring bench in the league last season and desperately need someone who can provide scoring while the starters rest. More often than not, they held tight with the starters, accrued a deficit with the bench, fought their way back into it with the starters, then repeated. The idea is to keep that deficit small when changing rotations.
