Blazers Sign Dee Bost

SEPTEMBER 27TH: The Blazers have officially announced Bost's deal, along with the rest of their training camp roster, via press release. It's a two-year, minimum-salary deal with $25K guaranteed for this season and nothing guaranteed for 2014/15, as Mark Deeks of ShamSports reported earlier this month.

AUGUST 19TH: The Trail Blazers have signed Dee Bost to a contract, according to Joe Freeman of the Oregonian (via Twitter). Freeman hears from a source that the deal is non-guaranteed and that Bost is expected to ultimately land with the Idaho Stampede.

The point guard graduated from Mississippi State last season and averaged 15.8 points and 5.6 assists as a senior.  Bost is the school's all-time assist leader with 633 dimes, good for eighth all-time in the Southeastern Conference.

Bost got a training camp invite from the Blazers at the end of July and made a strong impression on the club early.  The 23-year-old went undrafted in 2012 and spent last season overseas with Budućnost Podgorica in Montenegro, averaging 8.3 PPG, 1.8 APG, and 1.3 turnovers in 21.5 minutes per contest.
