Portland Trail Blazers: 6 Takeaways from Blazers' Summer League Play
CJ McCollum was the Blazers' first-round pick from this year's draft.

It was a mixed bag for the Portland Trail Blazers in the Las Vegas Summer League.

All eyes were on first-round pick C.J. McCollum and whether he could live up to the billing as potentially the next Damian Lillard.

Questions arose whether returning Blazers Meyers Leonard, Victor Claver, Joel Freeland and Will Barton could show significant improvement in their games and dominate Summer League competition after an NBA season under their belt.

Portland finished a disappointing 1-5 in Vegas, bowing out in the consolation round of the tournament with a 72-66 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
