2015/16 Roster Counts: Portland Trail Blazers

During the offseason it’s OK for teams to carry as many as 20 players, but clubs must trim their rosters down to a maximum of 15 by opening night. In the meantime, some teams will hang around that 15-man line, while others will max out their roster counts. Some clubs may actually have more than 15 contracts that are at least partially guaranteed on the books. That means they’ll end up paying players who won’t be on the regular season roster, unless they can find trade partners.

With plenty more movement still to come, here’s the latest look at the Blazers’ roster size, the contract guarantee status of each player, and how each player came to be on Portland’s roster.

      Good question! A lot of offseason still left, but I’ll ride with the Blazers here. I like Terry Stotts, and I think McCollum and Meyers Leonard showed something toward the end of last season. They could have breakout years.

          You’re thinking of the Kings dealing Ray McCallum

      Definitely have to go with Portland. They have the more cohesive roster, despite all the new additions. The Blazers likely aren’t a playoff team, but I give them credit for turning a bad situation (Aldridge departing) into some interesting young pieces. The Lakers are a bit of a mess, and will be until Kobe retires. Though you have to love their future with Russell leading the team.
