Shadeon Sharpe and Cam Reddish
Sharpe and Reddish are who Portland Trail Blazers fans may want to see starting, as they provide the most upside.
Sharpe was ranked as the No. 1 shooting guard and No. 3 overall prospect in the class of 2021 by 247Sports for a reason. He is known for his scoring ability, particularly his shooting from beyond the 3-point line.
In 20.3 mpg this season, he’s shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from three. His field goal percentage is good for fourth on the team for players who are averaging at least six shots per game.
Sharpe has only started five times this season, and his potential to become a star in this league has fans begging for more.
Reddish was selected with the 10th overall pick in 2019 because he can score from all areas of the court and play strong defense. If he can reach his potential, he has the talent to be an all-star.
Reddish is currently shooting 48.1 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from three in his first three games as a Blazer while playing 23 minutes per night.
If Billups gives these two another 8 mpg, he’s replaced about half of Simons’ vacated minutes. Doing so gives the Blazers an idea of what they have in these two young players full of star potential.
