Terence Davis Claimed Off Waivers By Blazers’ G League Affiliate

It appears as though free agent wing Terence Davis will attempt to find an NBA job by playing in the G League, as he recently signed an NBAGL contract.

Davis was claimed off waivers by the Rip City Remix, the Trail Blazers‘ new affiliate, tweets Sean Highkin of Rose Garden Report. The move is official, according to the G League’s transactions log.

When a player — like Davis — signs a NBAGL contract for the first time, he’s placed on waivers. If no team claims him, he enters the available player pool. Davis was obviously claimed by the Remix, so he’ll presumably be heading to Portland to pursue his comeback.

Davis, 26, spent the past two-and-a-half seasons with the Kings. He was unable to find a new NBA team in unrestricted free agency over the offseason, despite having several clubs rumored to be interested in his services. The Kings renounced his rights in order to maximize their cap space this summer.

Davis, who went undrafted in 2019 out of Mississippi, spent his first season-and-a-half with Toronto prior to being traded to the Kings. He appeared in 64 regular season games (13.1 MPG) with Sacramento in 2022/23, averaging 6.7 PPG and 2.2 RPG on .423/.366/.791 shooting.

Another rumor over the summer stated that Spanish powerhouse FC Barcelona was keeping tabs on Davis, but a deal never came together.

As was the case with Davon Reed and Lance Stephenson, two other veterans attempting comebacks via the G League, Davis will remain an unrestricted free agent, because NBA contracts have a higher priority than NBAGL deals.
