Idaho will represent the Portland Trail Blazers this season and look to improve upon their 7th place Western Conference finish from a year ago. They secured the 3rd overall pick in this year's draft and selected former Orlando Magic forward Justin Harper. Harper was a casualty of the new regime this season. He had a stellar career at Richmond where he averaged 17.9 pts & 6.9 reb as a senior on his way to an A-10 All-Conference 1st Team selection. He was picked 32nd overall in the 2011 NBA draft by Cleveland and traded to Orlando for two future 2nd round picks. He played nine games in France with Strasbourg during the lockout and returned to find playing time hard to come by where he appeared in just 14 NBA games.
