J.J. Hickson the Blazers’ Starting Center?
And the starting lineup for your 2012-13 Trail Blazers is: Damian Lillard, Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and J.J. Hickson.
When the Blazers open training camp one week from today at the practice facility in Tualatin, that’s the lineup new coach Terry Stotts will debut.
“J.J. is the incumbent,” Stotts said. “I’m not saying he’s going to be the starting center opening night. We’ll have to see how training camp goes, see how the preseason goes, and then we’ll make that determination. Meyers (Leonard) has played very well (this summer). But it’s just like politics: J.J. has been here, he’s the returner, so going into it he has the advantage.”
