Osbourne, who is his eighth season with the Blazers, was one of the first additions Stotts made to his staff when he began his tenure in Portland. Prior to the Blazers, Osbourne served as the head coach of Tulsa 66ers (D-League at that time).
Once in Orlando, the Blazers are scheduled to scrimmage against the Raptors on July 23. Following a scrimmage schedule that includes three matchups, Portland will face Memphis on July 31.
Last year, Kerry Eggers took an in-depth look at Osbourne’s coaching journey. You can read Eggers’ full story by clicking here.
