Blazers Sign Moses Brown To One-Year Contract

AUGUST 22: The signing is official, according to a team press release.

AUGUST 21: Moses Brown has agreed to a partially guaranteed one-year contract with the Trail Blazers, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets.

Brown has turned into a journeyman in his NBA career, which began in 2019, and it’s come full circle with his return to Portland. He played his first nine games with the Trail Blazers during the 2019/20 campaign.

He has also had stints with Oklahoma City, Dallas, Cleveland, the Los Angeles Clippers and, most recently, Brooklyn. He appeared in two games with the Nets after signing a pair of 10-day contracts last season. Brown logged 34 games with the Clippers last season before they waived him in mid-February.

The 7’2” Brown has averaged 5.5 points and 5.2 rebounds in 12.4 minutes during his 128 career games.

With only 12 other players on guaranteed deals, the Trail Blazers have ample room to add Brown. He has a chance to be the main backup behind center Jusuf Nurkic. He’ll battle John Butler, who was re-signed to a two-way deal, for minutes off the bench, unless the Blazers add another big man.
