#26 - Caleb Swanigan - Portland Trail Blazers

23 Juin, 2017, 13:37 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Coming off a strong second season with the Boilermakers, the 6-foot-9 Swanigan was selected Thursday by the Portland Trail Blazers with the 26th overall pick of the National Basketball Association draft.

Portland had the 26th pick in Thursday's draft and selected Purdue forward Caleb Swanigan.

How will Swanigan fit in Portland? The return paid dividends as the big man earned First Team All-American Honors and led Purdue to a Big Ten Conference title.

Names of office bearers and working committee members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha was announced on Wednesday. Media reports say that the accused hatched a plot to print fake notes with a face value of Rs 200 crore.


Swanigan averaged 18.5 points and 12.5 rebounds per game his sophomore season at Purdue and although he's called a "tweener" (hyrbid PF/C), his skillset scoring in the post and rebounding could be just what Portland needs moving forward.

Swanigan measures in at 6-foot-8, 246 pounds. Although his size and strength assist him on the offensive end, he lacks the springy jumping abilities of many comparable prospects, which limits him defensively.
