    Press Release-

     PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Trail Blazers have signed rookie guard Elliot Williams. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    “We’re very excited to have a player with the character and potential that Elliot has,” said Director of College Scouting Chad Buchanan. “He’s made some pretty big strides in college and now we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do at the next level.”

    Portland selected Williams with the 22nd overall pick in the first round of the 2010 NBA Draft.
     
    Williams, 21, posted averages of 17.9 points (45.9% FG, 36.6% 3-PT, 75.8% FT), 4.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.32 steals in 34 games (all starts) as a sophomore at Memphis in 2009-10, earning All-Conference USA First Team and Conference USA Newcomer of the Year honors.

    The 6-5, 180-pound guard played his freshman year at Duke in 2008-09, where he averaged 4.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 34 games before transferring to Memphis.
     
    Williams will practice with the team’s NBA Summer League squad but will be held out of game action as a precautionary measure due to injury.
    First Luke Babbitt officially signs with the team, now Elliot Williams is locked up. Great news. I like the fact we aren't overspending on any free agent and made our noise during the draft.

    I still think the real noise has yet to be made. I don't think any of it will happen until after they hire a GM and probably will happen during or directly after Summer League. There will for sure be some elbows rubbed and some pitches thrown during that week in Vegas.

    The kid is a freak athlete. I heard he tested at the practice facility a 38 inch vertical STANDING leap...just insane.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
