Free agent center Joel Przybilla has chosen to sign with Blazers, source tells Yahoo! Sports.

The Bulls and Heat — two contenders in need of depth along the front line — courted him and had originally been considered the frontrunners. But the 11-year NBA veteran decided to go with the place he played from 2004 to the first half of last season. He will provide some depth behind a front line led by LaMarcus Aldridge.

He chose playing where he wanted to over chasing a ring (the Blazers are a good team but not a contender).
