The 2017 first-round pick compiled a preseason-high scoring total while also putting in solid work on the boards. Swanigan finished with averages of 8.4 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists across seven games in the Las Vegas summer league, so he built up some momentum coming into training camp. After having only made minimal contributions as a rookie, the Purdue product will look to make some inroads this coming season while backing up Al-Farouq Aminu at the four.
Swanigan delivered seven points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine rebounds and five assists across 26 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 91-73 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Swanigan made well-rounded contributions in the championship game win, putting the finishing touches on a solid summer league resume for the second consecutive year. The 2017 first-round pick averaged 8.4 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists across 26.3 minutes over seven games in Las Vegas, and he'll now try to parlay his momentum into a strong training camp and preseason. Swanigan only averaged 7.0 minutes per contest in his rookie season, so the Trail Blazers will undoubtedly be looking for a much better return on investment in the coming campaign.
Swanigan had 21 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and one block in 30 minutes during Monday's 97-92 summer league victory over Memphis.
Swanigan had his best game of the summer league, coming at a crucial time as the Trail Blazers were able to advance to the final where they will face the Los Angeles Lakers. Swanigan impressed during his rookie summer league campaign but he was unable to translate that across to the regular season. Portland is certainly not stacked at the power forward position and hopefully, he can force his way into some more meaningful minutes in his sophomore season.
Swanigan finished with 11 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 13 rebound and five assists across 27 minutes during Saturday's 93-78 summer league win over the Jazz.
Swanigan struggled to find run as rookie, playing just 189 total minutes with the Blazers last season. But, he put together 61 points, 54 rebounds and 14 assists -- comparable numbers to Saturday's performance. His next chance to build on the effort arrives Sunday against the Hawks.
Swanigan registered 10 points (3-4 FG, 4-5 FT) and four rebounds in 18 minutes Thursday as Portland fell to Houston.
Swanigan collected a career-high 10 points Thursday against Houston. The rookie big might be worth a look as the season winds down and Portland begins to gear up for a playoff run, but his ceiling is low and the chances of him collecting DNP's is just as likely as he is rotation minutes. In the grand scheme, Swanigan is a long-term project. Be cautious if you decide to take the flyer.
