The Blazers were able to sign Eubanks despite having 15 players on the roster, via a hardship exception.
The exception was granted following long-term injuries to Damian Lillard, Nassir Little, Joe Ingles and Didi Louzada.

The Blazers have also signed Brandon Williams to a two-year two-way contract after converting Trendon Watford’s two-way deal into a long-term contract earlier today.
Williams joined Portland earlier this season, signing a 10-day contract while multiple Blazers went through COVID health and safety protocol.
