Portland Trail Blazers Needs Heading Into the Offseason

Trail Blazers Free Agents

Here is a list of the players who are upcoming Portland Trail Blazers free agents that will either need to be re-signed or replaced.

  • Norman Powell, SG (Player-Option)
  • Kelijin Blevins, G (RFA)
  • Derrick Jones, SF
  • Carmelo Anthony, SF
  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, SF
  • T.J. Leaf, PF, (RFA)
  • Harry Giles, PF
  • Enes Kanter, C
  • Zach Collins, C (RFA)

The Blazers need to take this offseason one day at a time. In addition to the Lillard situation, Carmelo Anthony may be out of Portland soon as well. At 37 years old, Melo may not fit what could soon be a rebuilding Blazers team. Norman Powell is another player whose player-option will likely hinge on the future direction of the team. Powell is a capable defender and spot-up shooter. He could command more than the $11.6 million the Blazers owe him, should he decide to become a free agent.

The Portland Trail Blazers seem to be headed toward rebuild sooner rather than later. New head coach Chauncey Billups will have a chance to truly turn this team to fit his image.
