Gary Trent Jr. shot 3-of-7 from three in Saturday’s loss to the Lakers, scoring 16 points (5-of-13 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with four rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Trent, starting for the injured Damian Lillard, didn’t have his best night shooting the basketball but it should not put a damper on what he was able to do in the bubble. He capped the series with back-to-back double figure scoring efforts, and he reached double digits in seven of Portland’s eight seeding games. Depending upon what Portland does in free agency, as Carmelo Anthony will be an unrestricted free agent but Trevor Ariza is under contract, Trent is worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues. At minimum he’s ahead of Anfernee Simons, who tallied 13 points, five rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers, in the pecking order when assessing Portland’s supplementary options.
