  • Trail Blazers' Carmelo Anthony: Expected to come off bench

    Anthony is expected to come off the bench this season while Robert Covington and Derrick Jones start, Aaron J. Fentress of The Oregonian reports.

    Anthony, at 36 years old, will be coming off the bench for the first time in his career. He should still see minutes in the mid-to-high-20s and will presumably be a focal point of the bench unit. Still, a hit to his fantasy value is likely.

  • Trail Blazers' Derrick Jones: Likely to start with Covington

    Jones is expected to start at one of the forward spots alongside Robert Covington, Aaron J. Fentress of The Oregonian reports.

    Surprisingly, coach Terry Stotts is expected to give Jones the nod over Carmelo Anthony, who will be coming off the bench for the first time in his career. That said, Jones is a low-usage offensive player and is likely just in the starting five for defense while Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic handle the scoring.

  • Trail Blazers' Keljin Blevins: Inks two-way deal with Blazers

    Blevins has signed a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers.

    The 25-year-old went undrafted in 2019, though he spent three summer league games with Portland. Last season, he appeared in 35 G League games with the Northern Arizona Suns, averaging 4.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.1 minutes.

  • Trail Blazers' CJ Elleby: Reaches deal with Blazers

    Elleby signed a two-year, $2.42 million contract with the Trail Blazers on Sunday.

    Now that he's officially on Portland's books on a standard rookie contract, the No. 46 overall pick in last week's draft should have a clear path to the team's opening-night roster. The 20-year-old should make his biggest impact for the Trail Blazers as a perimeter threat, as he knocked down 36.7 percent of his three-point attempts over his two seasons at Washington State.

  • Trail Blazers' Rodney Hood: Should be ready for season opener

    Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey said Monday that he expects Hood (Achilles) to be ready to go when the team begins its season in late December, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

    Portland's willingness to re-sign Hood on a two-year, $20.9 million contract over the weekend already implied some confidence in his health, and Olshey's comments about the swingman only provide further reinsurance. Before tearing his left Achilles' tendon in early December, Hood had been a full-time starter for Portland, averaging 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.7 triples and 1.5 assists in 29.5 minutes per game over 21 appearances. Since Hood sustained the injury, the Trail Blazers have added Robert Covington, Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Jones at forward, which could relegate the 28-year-old to a bench role to begin 2021-22.

  • Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Will be sidelined to begin season

    Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey said Monday that Collins (ankle) likely won't be ready for game action until the second or third week of January, Aaron J. Fentress of The Oregonian reports.

    Olshey's comments indicate that Collins will be sidelined when the 2020-21 season begins in late December, an unsurprising development given that the big man underwent surgery in late August to address a left ankle injury. Collins was seen working out at the Trail Blazers' practice facility Monday, but the 23-year-old doesn't look like he's particularly close to resuming full-court, full-contact work just yet. Expect the newly re-signed Carmelo Anthony and free-agent pickup Derrick Jones to handle most of the minutes at power forward until Collins is ready to play again.

  • Trail Blazers' Harry Giles: Lands in Portland

    Giles signed a one-year contract with the Trail Blazers on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The Kings declined the 22-year-old's team option for 2020-21 last year, so he hit free agency after the shortened season. Giles averaged 6.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 14.5 minutes for Sacramento last season, and he'll provide frontcourt depth behind Jusuf Nurkic for his new team.

  • Trail Blazers' Carmelo Anthony: Re-signing with Blazers

    Anthony will re-sign with the Trail Blazers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Unsigned to begin 2019-20, Anthony joined the Trail Blazers in November after the team began struggling due to the loss of Zach Collins. Anthony stepped in well, averaging 15.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 threes in 32.8 minutes. Charania notes that Anthony wanted to show loyalty to the Blazers, who gave him the opportunity to return to the NBA last season. It's not clear if he'll continue starting, as the team seems motivated to put Collins in the starting five, and Portland also acquired Robert Covington during the offseason. Given that uncertainty, plus Anthony's age (36), he makes for a bit of a risky fantasy option in standard leagues and doesn't have much upside as a flier.

  • Trail Blazers' Derrick Jones: Headed to Portland

    Jones and the Trail Blazers have come to terms on a two-year, $19 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Jones averaged a career high 8.5 points with the Heat last season to go along with 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 23.3 minutes per game. The high-flyer projects to provide depth on the wing for Portland in the upcoming season.

  • Trail Blazers' Rodney Hood: Returning to Portland

    Hood and the Trail Blazers have come to terms on a two-year, $21 million deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Hood's decision to decline his $6 million player option certainly paid off with this deal. However, the second year of this deal is not guaranteed. He averaged 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 triples across 29.5 minutes in 21 games with Portland last season before suffering a season-ending Achilles injury. It remains unclear if he will be ready to go when the season tips off, but it has had nearly a full calendar year to recover. He projects to again come off the bench and provide depth on the wing.
