Tim Quarterman is headed back for another stint in the NBA D-League. Instead of joining the Windy City Bulls as he has in the past, Quarterman will play for the Long Island Nets, as stated in the Trail Blazerspress release:

PORTLAND, Ore. (Feb. 21, 2017) – The Portland Trail Blazers have assigned rookie guard Tim Quarterman to the Long Island Nets of the NBA Development League, it was announced today by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.

In 13 games with the Trail Blazers this season, Quarterman (6-6, 190) is averaging 1.5 points, 0.5 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 3.4 minutes.

This is the third D-League assignment of the season for Quarterman, who served two separate stints with the Windy City Bulls on Jan. 12 and Jan. 29.

In nine games (seven starts) with Windy City, Quarterman averaged 9.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 7.2 assists.

The Trail Blazers signed Quarterman, undrafted out of LSU, on July 25, 2016.

Quarterman has played only 44 total minutes for the Trail Blazers this season, and never more than eight minutes in a single game, notching a season-high 7:41 in a 45-point loss to the Golden State Warriors. These D-League assignments are meant to give him an opportunity for some degree of competitive game action.
