Jusuf Nurkić Announces Return to Trail Blazers Will Come Friday at Orlando
The Portland Trail Blazers only made one trade, but they’ll expect more than just Norman Powell to join them on the court Friday against Orlando.
Jusuf Nurkić didn’t wait for a news breaker like ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski or The Athletic’s Shams Charania. He did it himself.
