Portland Trail Blazers Free Agent #5 – Isaac Bonga

Outside of Robert Covington, and recent rookie forward draftee Greg Brown, the Blazers have very little size at their forward spots. Brown probably won’t play any meaningful minutes this season, leaving just Covington at six-foot-seven.

Because of Covington’s massive wingspan, he still has great forward size, but the Blazers need to add more of the same. Defensive ace Issac Bonga could be an exciting young addition.

Bonga is amazingly still only 21, even though he’s been in the league three years.

At six-foot-eight with a plus wingspan, Bonga is a raw small forward who has great size.

With an ability to handle the ball and a developing shot, he is a jumbo wing that could really change the Blazers offense if he developed while having exciting skills on the other end.

Portland Trail Blazers Free Agent #6 – Harry Giles

Harry Giles was an exciting signing for the Blazers in the 2020 Free Agency period. After being one of the most hyped high school prospects in 2015, Giles injuries meant that he never really reached the ceiling that was expected of the number one high school recruit.

A six-foot-ten big man, Giles still has one of the most impressive skillsets for a big in this league. But, he is still so raw and struggles to stay on the floor because of his injury history.

In flashes last season, Giles was great. He dimed people up from the perimeter, hustled on the glass, and played strong defense. But these moments were far too rare. He only played 200 minutes last season and is maybe close to being out of the league.

Giles, at just 23, deserves another shot in the NBA. As a backup big with a wide range of skills, he could work for another season in Portland
