Trail Blazers Sign Gary Trent Jr.

The Trail Blazers have signed second-round pick Gary Trent Jr., the team announced on its website. The contract is fully guaranteed for three years, tweets Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Portland will likely use part of its mid-level exception to complete the signing. The Blazers are over the cap, and minimum deals are limited to two seasons.

Trent, the 37th overall pick, came to Portland in a draft night deal with Sacramento, with the Blazers giving up cash and two second-round picks in return.

The 19-year-old averaged 14.5 points per game in his freshman season at Duke and shot 40% from 3-point range. He led the ACC in 3-pointers made with 97.
