Trail Blazers nearing contract extension with coach Terry Stotts

1

The Blazers hold an option on the third and final year of Stotts' contract for 2014-15, but that'll likely be torn up and replaced with the new deal.

Grantland C.J. McCollum NBA Job Interview

Looks like a fun series of interviews with potential lottery selections. I'm not sold on McCollum as "the guy" for the Blazers at 10, but you have to admire his demeanor and attitude.

I would love to have Joel back for one more season, even if it is only in a 5-10 minutes, mentor role to Meyers Leonard.

Wolfson: POR RFA F Batum Left MIN Without Verbal Agreement

270
Darren Wolfson of ESPN1500.com reports that the Minnesota Timberwolves have still yet to make an offer for Portland Trail Blazers restricted free agent forward Nicolas Batum. ---------------------------------- According to a source with intimate knowledge of those discussions, Batum is the Wolves' Plan A in free agency -- and he told the Wolves he has legitimate interest in coming. Financially, the Wolves know where Batum stands, so a verbal agreement in advance of July 11 -- the first day free agent contracts can be signed -- could come very soon. But as of Monday night, with Batum no longer in the Twin Cities, a verbal agreement had not been reached. ... The team source said there's a far better chance that Batum would come via a sign-and-trade, because outright landing a restricted free agent is too tough. ---------------------------------- Here's my quick-hit read between the lines on it. -- Ben Hat tip: Blazers.com ed: text edited, bumped to front page

I can see why he's rising up so many draft boards.

Ford: 2012 NBA Mock Draft, Version 6

99
Chad Ford of ESPN.com has released version 6.0 of his 2012 NBA Mock Draft. In it, he forecasts the Portland Trail Blazers selecting Uconn center Andre Drummond and Weber State point guard Damian Lillard. --------------------------------- 6th Pick: Andre Drummond: This could be a scary pick for Portland. At some point Drummond's rewards start to outweigh his risks. The Blazers need size and Drummond has the potential to be a dominant big man if he ever improves his motor. If not Drummond, I think the Trail Blazers have to start looking at players such as Damian Lillard or Dion Waiters. Maybe they can package picks Nos. 6 and 11 and move up to get a player such as Brad Beal. 11th Pick: Damian Lillard: If the Blazers get Drummond at No. 6, their other big need is at the point. If Lillard is here, I think he'd be tough to pass on. Although he's not a pure point guard, he does so many things well and should be able to contribute right away. Jeremy Lamb is also a very viable option here. --------------------------------- ed. text updated, bumped to front page

Let's hope this holds true when the season rolls around.
