Burchard is a slasher who gets to the rim and is a solid secondary ball-handling option. The Blazers will need to find some size and rebounding following the graduations of their top two interior pieces, but with Gallagher leading the way, Beckman should be competitive again. This program always finds new pieces to step into big roles.
