J.J. Hickson Re-Signs With Blazers For 1 Year

After his best statistical season in the NBA, the Portland Trail Blazers have re-signed J.J Hickson to a one-year deal.

The deal is worth $4 million plus incentives, according to ProBasketballDraft.com, meaning Hickson could be ripe for a healthy long-term deal next summer if he improves on last season's output.

Last season Hickson averaged 15.1 points (a career high) and 8.8 rebounds per game, shooting 54.3 percent from the floor.

Despite the season Hickson had, The Oregonian's Jason Quick was quick to offer his two cents on the signing:

The 19th overall pick of the 2008 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavailers, Hickson was traded to the Sacramento Kings before the 2011-2012 season, but waived after 35 games.
