Blazers: Norman Powell chooses to be free agent | NBA
With the rumors surrounding Damian Lillard, the summer promises to be very busy on the Portland side, and management will also have to deal with the Norman Powell case.
Arrived from the Raptors during the season, in exchange for Gary Trent Jr, he immediately adapted to his new team, but also to a new role, of winger, signing at the same time his best season in the NBA. At the best time therefore on a personal level since the former NBA champion has the opportunity to sign a very good contract.
For this, Yahoo! Sports announces that he has chosen to leave a last season at 11.6 million dollars with the hope, no doubt, of doubling his salary. But Portland will have competition, and especially Norman Powell will be an unprotected free agent. Which means the Blazers won’t be able to keep him just by lining up with an outside bid.
Depending on the decision of the leaders to extend it or not, it will also be necessary to monitor the situation of CJ McCollum, whose name is most often cited in the event of an exchange.
