Dee Bost was with the Trail Blazers summer league team a year ago, but he didn't get a training camp invitation last fall and wasn't with Portland's summer league squad this year. Nonetheless, he remained on the team's radar, and he's agreed to join the Trail Blazers in training camp this fall, tweets Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com.
Bost went undrafted in 2012 after four years at Mississippi State, where the 6'2" point guard put up 15.8 points, 5.6 assists, and 3.0 turnovers per game as a senior. He spent last season playing in Montenegro, and his numbers dipped to 8.3 PPG, 1.8 APG and 1.3 turnovers in 21.5 minutes per contest. He wasn't too statistically impressive in summer league last year, but he did knock down 45.5% of his three-point attempts across a small sample size.
Like most training camp invitees, Bost will probably receive a "summer contract," or a non-guaranteed minimum-salary arrangement that would cover just 2013/14 if he were to make the regular season roster. Teams can carry as many as 20 players into training camp, which gives fringe prospects like Bost a chance.
