The Portland Trail Blazers announce their newest signing:

The Portland Trail Blazers have signed guard Luis Montero, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey.

Montero, 22, worked out for the Trail Blazers prior to the NBA Draft and is on the team's 2015 NBA Summer League roster.

Playing for Westchester Community College in 2013-14, Montero averaged 15.6 points (52.9% FG, 43.7% 3-PT, 67.2% FT), 5.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

A native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Montero (6-7, 185) played high school basketball at Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Massachusetts.

The contract is not guaranteed, a common way teams hedge bets on Summer League players. Usually players offered these kinds of contracts get invited to training camp in the fall as well but a non-guaranteed deal provides relatively little indication of whether a player will end up making the regular season roster.
