Schroeder: The Latest on the Search for the 17th Man

New, comments

Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside with new details that clarify earlier reports about the players who might fill the 17th spot (second hardship exemption) for the Portland Trail Blazers.

I've received word from a league source that it definitely isn't Dwayne Jones.  I did find out however that both Jones and Jake Voskuhl (yes, that Jake Voskuhl) were in Portland Monday for a workout, though Portland had no plans to sign either player following the workout.  There was no mention of Barron.

The remaining possibilities include Barron if he was indeed at Monday's workout or former Blazer Shavlik Randolph.  Randolph was recently released by the Miami Heat.  Rod Benson, the leading vote getter in this poll, has not been contacted by the Blazers front office and is seemingly not a candidate.
