Blazers sign Randolph to 10-day contract
Tualatin, Ore. — The Portland Trail Blazers signed forward Shavlik Randolph to a 10-day contract today, the team announced.
Randolph was waived Tuesday by the team.
“Had we not waived him, he would have become fully guaranteed for the season,” said Tom Penn, Blazers vice president of basketball operations.
The 6-foot-10, 236-pound Randolph was originally signed by Portland on Dec. 30 with the team’s second NBA hardship exemption. He was added to the roster to provide depth at the center position — injured Blazer centers Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla are out for the season.
“We still need his body,” Portland coach Nate McMillan said. “Having that body for another 10 days is important for us.”
Randolph previously appeared in two games for the Blazers this season, totaling four points, a rebound and an assist in five minutes of action.
Portland’s roster now stands at 16 players.
