HoopsHype: Joel Freeland Says "Nothing Is Certain" With Blazers

37
HoopsHype.com has an interview with Portland Trail Blazers international center Joel Freeland, who has been making noise about a possible jump to the NBA in 2012-13. A delegation of Blazers executives met with Freeland in Houston recently, as he prepared for the 2012 London Olympics with the Great Britain national team. Freeland was noncommittal about his future. ------------------------------------ "I was speaking to them a little bit when I was over there. Just having a conversation about my future, about the possibility of me going over there. Nothing is certain at this point. I have some other options as well I'm looking at. I'm just biding my time and waiting for the opportunity to make my decision." Do you think there is a good chance that you will play in the NBA this season? "I don't know, I'm just biding my time trying to make the right decision. Obviously I'd like to be over there but in the right cirumstances, in the right situation. I can't put a percentage on it, I just have to wait for the right moment." ------------------------------------ Freeland also said that he isn't aware of a buyout deadline. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
