Undrafted forward Jaylen Hoard will reportedly sign a two-way NBA contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Although he was mostly less-than-stellar during his freshman year with the Demon Deacons, Hoard remains intriguing thanks to his high defensive ceiling and excellent length. He's a consistent jump shot away from becoming a rotational piece in the NBA.

Hoard averaged 13.1 points and 7.6 rebounds for a struggling Wake Forest squad that finished 11-20 last season.

What the analysts are saying

  • "With his NBA body and 7-foot-1 wingspan, Hoard is a player teams will want to get a closer look at in the pre-draft process, even after an extremely underwhelming year as part of an objectively bad Wake Forest team. While he didn't have much help there, shot-creation isn't his strength, and his value lies in his potential as a multi-positional defender who can hit set shots." - Sports Illustrated's Jeremy Woo
