The Portland Trail Blazers were a frustrating team to watch at times last season. The core group of LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, Damian Lillard, and Wesley Matthews didn’t lack talent, but the dearth of other contributors made the team fairly one-dimensional. Now sporting a revamped roster due to a busy offseason, Portland coach Terry Stotts hopes to shake things up a bit in 2013-14.

Said Stotts:

You like having options. I think having versatility is very important. I like to change lineups, I like to change matchups. Whether it’s a shooting lineup (or) a power lineup, we have a lot of different ways we can go this year.


The team has the ability to show a lot of different looks (Oregon Live).

The Blazers bolstered their roster by adding Robin Lopez, Thomas Robinson, Mo Williams, Dorell Wright, and rookie C.J. McCollum. Those players should help improve a Portland bench that was worst in the league last season.

However, there’s still no news about what will be replacing free chalupa giveaways. That’s the thing the fans wanna know!
