The Portland Trail Blazers released guard/forward Sasha Pavlovic on Saturday.

Pavlovic, 29, averaged 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds in 39 appearances last season. Pavlovic was entering the second year of a three-year contract but his 2013-14 and 2014-15 salaries were non-guaranteed.

The Blazers acquired Pavlovic from the Boston Celtics in a 2012 three-team trade that sent Courtney Lee to Boston in a sign-and-trade from the Houston Rockets.

Pavlovic said during his April exit interview that he wasn't sure about his future in Portland.

Season: "I think it was good. We had a really young team with a lot of talent and I tried to be professional, play as hard as I can."

...

Future with Blazers: "I don't know anything. It's too early. The only thing I know is that I'm going to try to stay healthy this summer, get in great shape, I still have a few years left."

What type of team do you want to play for next year: "I don't really think about that. The only thing I know is that I'm going to keep working hard, wherever it is."

Summer plans: "I'm going to go back home, take a month or a month and a half off, then I'm going to start getting ready, get in shape."

The Blazers agreed to sign unrestricted free agent forward Dorell Wright on Saturday.
