The Portland Trail Blazers will bring another once-promising young player to training camp.
Former University of Arizona standout Grant Jerrett will join the Blazers on a training camp deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Jerrett, 23, was drafted 40th overall by the Blazers in 2013. He was later traded to the Thunder on draft night.
Jerrett has been touted for his length and shooting touch but has been unable to catch on as a stretch-four with an NBA team. Jerrett played only one season in the NBA (2014-15) and appeared in just eight total games for the Thunder and Jazz. He also has spent time in the NBA D-League, appearing in 46 games for three teams and averaging 14.5 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game.
The Jazz cut Jerrett before the 2015-16 season after he underwent surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder. Earlier this summer, Jerrett was invited to a free agent camp by the Detroit Pistons, but did not make the team.
Jerrett's contract with the Blazers is non-guaranteed.
