Per Alex Kennedy, Managing Editor of Basketball Insiders, Portland Trail Blazers restricted free agent Maurice Harkless has garnered interest from at least five teams.

Harkless, who was traded to Portland from Orlando last year for a top 56 protected pick is now in demand after a strong second half of the 2015-16 season.

He recorded averages of 6.4 points and 3.6 rebounds, but really stepped up production when head coach Terry Stotts made him a mainstay in the Trail Blazers' rotation. He started alongside Al-Farouq Aminu in the frontcourt during the NBA Playoffs.

Picked at No. 15 in the 2012 draft, Harkless earned just under $3 million last season. His price is almost certain to edge closer to, if not above $10 million per season, with this amount of interest.
