Earlier today, former Purdue player, Caleb Swanigan, along with Zach Collins and Trail Blazers’ general manager, Neil Olshey, held a press conference with Portland and national media regarding the NBA Draft and being selected by the Portland Trail Blazers. You can watch the full press conference below.
It was shown at the end of the press conference that Biggie would be #50 for the team, a number that he has worn for most, if not all, of his basketball career. As you may recall, Swanigan chose the number 50 to honor his late father. That was the age of his father when he in a nursing home died a few years ago.
