Portland Trail Blazers rookie Scoot Henderson made his NBA Summer League debut Friday. And by early accounts, he’s looking like a No. 3 overall draft pick should look.
Henderson hit his first pro basket on a step-back jumper against the Houston Rockets.
But later, he wowed the crowd with a one-handed reverse layup around the guy who was picked after him in the draft, Amen Thompson.
Scoot Henderson with the blow-by and reverse… sheesh.
