Trail Blazers Sign Tim Quarterman to Partially Guaranteed Contract

New, comments

How quickly the summer moves at times. Training camp is already coming up, and the Trail Blazers have made their first move to supplement their roster.

The Portland Trail Blazers have signed undrafted guard Tim Quarterman to a partially guaranteed contract, in preparation for their upcoming training camp, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania. Quarterman, 21, is a Louisiana State University product. He averaged 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in his final season with the Tigers, playing alongside 2016 No. 1 draft pick Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers.

Quarterman will be the first of a few roster-filling moves as the Blazers seek out large bodies to put on their practice court. He will not play for them during the regular season, but a training camp deal indicates that his skills are of a certain caliber that may interest other NBA teams at some point in the future. Standing 6’6" tall, the oversized point guard has a frame that some thought would earn him an NBA Draft selection.
