Raskin: Blazers F/C J.J. Hickson Is "Happy" In Portland But Unsure Of Future

Portland Trail Blazers forward/center J.J. Hickson, set to be an unrestricted free agent, is noncommittal about his future.


Alex Raskin of reports that Portland Trail Blazers forward/center J.J. Hickson, set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, is leaving all doors open regarding his future.

"I don't know," he told HOOPSWORLD about his future with the Blazers. "All I can do is control what I can control and that's play the game of basketball and the rest will work itself out."


He's been in much tougher situations than this, and after being released by a dysfunctional Kings organization, he's just happy to be getting a chance to prove himself again.

"Definitely, that situation definitely got to me mentally," Hickson said. "I'm a Trail Blazer now and I'm happy I'm here."

HIckson signed a one-year contract worth $4 million in July. The Blazers originally claimed him off waivers in March after the Sacramento Kings released him.
