The Trail Blazers have just 14 players with guaranteed salaries – leaving one opening for the regular-season roster.
Greg Stiemsma is entering the competition for it.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:
On one hand, Stiemsma is by far the most experienced of the bunch. He has played for the Celtics, Timberwolves, Pelicans and Raptors in a four-year NBA career.
On the other hand, he’s already 30 and probably past his physical prime. Known as a shot-blocker – a fair perception over a larger sample – he didn’t reject a single shot in his last NBA stint, 17 games with Toronto in 2014-15. That he played so little is also telling.
