The Portland Trail Blazers continue to expand their training camp roster, signing Isaiah Briscoe from the University of Kentucky to a training camp contract. The news comes from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 6’3” combo guard averaged 12 points and 4 assists in two seasons at Kentucky, playing 30 minutes per game. His 47% clip from the floor overall gives way to a homely 29% mark from the three-point arc and 63.5% from the foul line.

As recounted on Briscoe’s DraftExpress Profile Page, he was a hot prospect coming out of high school but his offensive struggles undercut his potential as a creative playmaker. His wingspan and build recommend him, but they weren’t enough to propel him into the 2017 NBA Draft.

The Trail Blazers worked out Briscoe during their draft preparation process.
