Portland Trail Blazers head coach Chauncey Billups believes there aren’t many centers in the NBA that possess the talent and skill of Jusuf Nurkic.

“There’s not a lot of centers in the league who are as talented and as skilled as him,” Billups said. “You have a big guy who can man your paint defensively, rebounds, can be good with the pass … and can make the 3. You can’t name me that many guys who can do that. So (making 3s) does make us a little more dangerously offensively.”
