The Portland Trail Blazers are adding Michael Holton as a radio analyst, the team announced Wednesday. Holton joins new play-by-play man Travis Demers on the Blazers’ radio broadcast. More from the press release:

A former Trail Blazer, Holton spent six seasons in the NBA from 1984-90, playing for Phoenix, Chicago, Portland and Charlotte. In 325 career games (122 starts), he averaged 6.2 points, 1.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 18.0 minutes.

”Michael’s long-standing with the team offers Trail Blazers fans a very unique and in-depth perspective,” said McGowan. “His experience at all levels of basketball from player to head coach make him the perfect analyst and compliment to Travis Demers on play-by-play.”

Holton served as the radio analyst for home games for the past two seasons. He will continue in his Blazers TV studio role with Jordan Kent when the team is at home.
