The Blazers are focused on Kentucky's Shaedon Sharpe at No. 7, per source.
Shaedon Sharpe is heading to Portland with the No. 7 pick! @brhoops
Sharpe, Dame, Simons
Blazers have a scary back-court 👀
A RISE LIKE NO OTHER.
Canada's finest Shaedon Sharpe is a TRAIL BLAZER 🇨🇦
Blazers say Shaedon Sharpe will wear #17, meaning it won't be retired for Tony Snell.
John Calipari said had Shaedon Sharpe chosen to play college ball next season, he would have been the 2023 No. 1 overall pick. Cal has coached four No. 1 selections, so he may know of what he speaks. If so, incredible for Portland.
Shaedon Sharpe will wear No. 17
After Shaedon Sharpe was taken earlier tonight, TyTy Washington becomes the 15th freshman guard to be drafted from Kentucky since 1988.
No other program has more than 5.
In last two days, Blazers added:
• Jerami Grant: Best forward in Portland since LMA left.
• Shaedon Sharpe: Big-time prospect with high ceiling.
• Jabari Walker: Potential 3-and-D player at 6'9". Worth it.
Shaedon Sharpe: "I'm really excited to get started. I can't wait to get to Portland."
Shaedon Sharpe: "I feel like I bring a dog mentality. I love to compete, I love to win. I get a lot of defensive stops."
So the question of whether his x-rays show that dog in him has been answers.
This is written by new Blazers assistant GM Mike Shcmitz on Shaedon Sharpe. You can find this on the ESPN app.
Jerami Grant yesterday and Shaedon Sharpe tonight. A vet to help win now & a young 6’6 guard they view as a potential star next to Simons in the future.
More work to come in FA. Give me Cronin over Olshey anyday. #ripcity https://t.co/acuVJu8kSH
Anfernee Simons, Nassir Little, Shaedon Sharpe, Greg Brown, Keon Johnson gotta be the most athletic young core in the league
Welcome to Rip City Shaedon Sharpe!!!
The Blazers have six pretty ridiculous high-flyers in Anfernee Simons, Jerami Grant, Shaedon Sharpe, Nassir Little, Greg Brown III and Keon Johnson.
Both Shaedon Sharpe and Jabari Walker will play at Summer League in Las Vegas.
Trajan Langdon says the Pelicans war room exploded in joy when the Trail Blazers selected Shaedon Sharpe, meaning Dyson Daniels would be there at 8. Langdon stated that their intel said Portland liked both Sharpe and Daniels so New Orleans braintrust was on edge.
Trajan Langdon says Pelicans’ war room “exploded” when the Trail Blazers took Shaedon Sharpe at 7. Knew Portland had interest in Sharpe and Daniels.
Imaginez un back-court Anfernee Simons x Shaedon Sharpe pour l’après Dame si Sharpe se développe bien. https://t.co/SjEbeHpfmt

🎙️ John Calipari, treinador de Kentucky, disse que se Shaedon Sharpe escolhesse jogar na NCAA nessa temporada, ele seria a primeira pick do próximo draft. Calipari já treinou quatro primeiras escolhas do 1° round do Draft em sua carreira por Kentucky.
Ele deve saber de algo. https://t.co/oaM53UFo03
