PORTLAND, Oregon – Former Montana State Bobcat Keljin Blevins is getting his shot in the NBA, as he was named to the Portland Trail Blazers Summer League roster on Monday. He is the second Bobcat to get a shot in the Summer League. His teammate Tyler Hall secured a spot on the Chicago Bulls’ roster.
It may be something of a family affair for Blevins, who’s cousin is Portland superstar Damian Lillard. Lillard even sat court-side to catch one of Belvins’ games in November against North Dakota.
