Trail Blazers extend Watford, release Smith

Article Summary:

If Watford progresses next season like he has this year, those numbers will be absolute bargains. At the very least, Watford will provide the Blazers with some much-needed frontcourt depth next season.

To clear a roster spot to be able to convert Watford from a two-way to a full-time NBA player, the Blazers released guard Dennis Smith, Jr. Smith had appeared in 37 games for Portland, averaging 5.6 points, 3.6 assists, and 1.2 steals per game.

The Blazers’ performance over the season’s final 23 games will be the referendum on Cronin’s trade flurry, and Watford will have a chance to prove himself worthy of this extension in that stretch as well.
