Wiltjer will join the Blazers' summer league entry, the Spokesman-Review reports.
The Portland native spent time with the Clippers' summer league team last summer and secured a training camp invite with the Raptors before being waived prior to the regular season. Wiltjer went on to spend most of the year with Olympiacos in Greece, where he averaged 7.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in less than 15 minutes per game. Two seasons ago, Wiltjer saw limited action for the Rockets, but his NBA future hit a bit of a snag when he was included as salary filler in the Chris Paul trade.
Wiltjer signed a contract with the Raptors' G-League affiliate, the Raptors 905, Saturday, Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic reports.
Wiltjer was cut earlier in the month by the Raptors while he was on a non-guaranteed training camp deal. It seems the team still believes he has some potential, however, after he posted 20.5 points per game in the G-League last year.
Wiltjer was cut by the Raptors on Saturday.
Wiltjer played just 44 minutes in the NBA with the Rockets last season, so this news isn't too surprising. He was an excellent G-League player, however, posting 20.5 points and 6.4 boards per game while hitting 37.7 percent of his looks from deep. He'll seemingly continue looking for work with other franchises.
Wiltjer agreed to a one-year, $1.3 million non-guaranteed deal with the Raptors on Tuesday, Oliver Maroney and Robby Kalland of Uproxx.com reports.
In signing the non-guaranteed deal, Wiltjer will compete for a job on the Raptors' 15-man roster. Last season, he played for the Rockets, though a significant chunk in the D-League, after going undrafted out of Gonzaga. He played just 44 minutes in the NBA. In the D-League, however, he posted 20.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while shooting 37.7 percent from deep. At 6-foot-10, he has the mold of a stretch-four.
Wiltjer, who was dealt to the Clippers in the trade that sent Chris Paul to the Rockets, was released by Los Angeles on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Wiltjer spent most of last season bouncing between the D-League and the NBA and saw just 43 minutes with the Rockets last year, totaling 13 points, 10 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block. He impressed in the D-League, however, posting 20.5 points and 6.4 rebounds while shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc.
Wiltjer was traded from the Rockets to the Clippers on Wednesday as part of the deal that sent Chris Paul to Houston, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Wiltjer, who spent most of last season bouncing between the D-League and the NBA, saw just 43 minutes of action with the Rockets, totaling 13 points, 10 boards, three steals, two assists and a block. That said, he averaged an impressive 20.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while shooting 37.7 percent from three in the D-League. It's unclear at this time whether or not he'll be retained by the Clippers, or if his presence in the deal is simply as a trade chip.
Wiltjer was assigned Sunday to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Wiltjer continues to battle with the Vipers in the D-League's Western Conference Finals, so look for him to move between the two rosters until the Vipers are bounced from the playoffs. He'll likely be recalled following Sunday's contest with the hope of being available for the Rockets matchup against the Thunder on Tuesday, although Wiltjer is not expected to be a part of the big club's playoff rotation.
Wiltjer was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday.
Wiltjer has averaged over 20 points per game in the D-League this term, but considering that production has translated to merely 14 NBA appearances, it's rather doubtful he plays a role in Houston's playoff opener Sunday night.
Wiltjer was assigned Thursday to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Vipers are heading into the their own Western Conference Finals and will face the Oklahoma City Blue on Thursday in the series opener. Wiltjer has played a prominent role for the Vipers this season, averaging 20.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 35.8 minutes. However, with the Rockets heading into the postseason themselves, they'll likely shrink their rotation even further, leaving Wiltjer on the outside looking in to the team's regular rotation once recalled.
Wiltjer was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Wiltjer heads back to Houston after helping the Vipers advanced to the second round of the D-League playoffs over the weekend. Look for the rookie to rejoin the Vipers once their second-round series against the Oklahoma City Blue begins. He may also see some action in Houston's regular season finale against the Timberwolves on Wednesday but shouldn't play a major role in the rotation once the playoffs begin.
Wiltjer was assigned Monday to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
The Vipers are currently battling the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the D-League playoffs, so Wiltjer will likely continue to move back and forth between the two rosters until they've been eliminated. That said, with the Rockets heading to the playoffs themselves, their rotation will likely shrink further, which should keep Wiltjer off the floor once recalled to the big club.
Wiltjer was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Monday.
Wiltjer recently suited up for the Vipers in Game 2 of their D-League playoff series with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, recording 23 points and 10 rebounds. With both both Houston and Rio Grande having games in Los Angeles on Monday, Wiltjer is likely to join the Rockets for the day before joining the Vipers at night for their series-deciding game.
Wiltjer was assigned to the D-League on Saturday.
The rookie out of Gonzaga has not been a factor for the Rockets this season, and he'll return to Rio Grande Valley to join the Vipers for the D-League playoffs. Wiltjer is averaging 20.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 22 games for the Vipers this season.
Wiltjer was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
Wiltjer made the trip down to southern Texas to take part in Game 1 of the Vipers' first-round D-League playoff series with the Los Angeles D-Fenders. The rookie forward contributed 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes during the victory. He'll rejoin the Rockets for Friday's game against the Pistons, but isn't expected to crack the rotation.
Wiltjer was assigned to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Thursday.
With the D-League playoffs now in full swing, Wiltjer will probably play in each Vipers game from here on out while occasionally joining the Rockets for any off days. Wiltjer has remained out of the rotation with the Rockets for majority of his rookie season, making only 13 appearances.
Wiltjer was recalled Thursday from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Wiltjer will rejoin the team for practice Thursday after what was a little over a two-week stint in the D-League. He's now played 22 games with the Vipers this season, averaging 20.5 points and 6.4 rebounds on the season. Though he'll likely remain out of the Rockets rotation Friday against the Bulls, Wiltjer should dress for the contest and act as insurance at power forward in the event Ryan Anderson (back) misses a second straight contest.
Wiltjer was assigned to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Wiltjer was promoted to the Rockets in advance of their final game before the All-Star break Feb. 15 against the Heat, but the undrafted rookie out of Gonzaga failed to see the floor. Since Wiltjer was unlikely to crack the big club's rotation coming out of the break, he'll report back to Rio Grande Valley in search of regular playing time. He's been one of the Vipers' top scoring options this season with an average of 20.1 points per game.
Wiltjer was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
Wiltjer hasn't been a contributor at the NBA level this season, and the Rockets will continue to groom him in the D-League as a potential asset down the road. He'll only join the Rockets ahead of Wednesday's game against the Heat because Rio Grande Valley isn't practicing while the D-League remains on its All-Star break.
Wiltjer was assigned to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday.
Wiltjer has been with the Rockets for the better part of the last three weeks, but he hasn't been in uniform for any games during that stretch. The 2016-17 season continues to look like mostly a developmental year for Wiltjer, who will get a chance at some in-game opportunities with the Vipers. In his 12 previous outings in the D-League, Wiltjer is averaging 20.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.
Wiltjer was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday, ESPN.com's Calvin Watkins reports.
Wiltjer has been lighting it up during his 12 D-League appearances on the season, averaging 20.8 points per game, but that's unlikely to translate into a regular role in coach Mike D'Antoni's rotation now that he's back with the Rockets. In fact, if Eric Gordon (foot) is cleared to play Friday against the Grizzlies, there's a real possibility that Wiltjer would serve as one of the Rockets' two inactive players for the contest along with Clint Capela (leg).
