Blazers’ Rayan Rupert Has Deep History with Top Prospect Zaccharie Risacher

The Portland Trail Blazers are tapping into the French invasion of talent that the NBA is experiencing, specifically with Rayan Rupert, the team’s second round pick in last summer’s draft.

Rupert spent most of the season with the G League’s Rip City Remix, but he found playing time in 39 games for the Blazers this season, averaging four points per game.

The Blazers are expected to have a high pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, and they could use their pick on another French prospect in Zaccharie Risacher, who still has potential to be the No.
