Blazers make roster cuts before final preseason game

The Portland Trail Blazers announced Tuesday afternoon that they have officially brought their roster down to 15 players.

The team announced that they cut Dee Bost, Richard Howell and former Oregon Duck E.J. Singler from their training camp roster. However, expect all three of those players, unless they get picked up by another team, to join the Blazers’ D-League affiliate, the Idaho Stampede.

Here is the release from the team:

The Portland Trail Blazers have placed guards Dee Bost and E.J. Singerand forward Richard Howell on waivers, it was announced today by General Manager Neil Olshey.

 Bost appeared in four preseason games averaging 3.5 points and 1.8 rebounds, while Singler averaged 1.0 point and 1.0 assist in two appearances and Howell averaged 1.0 rebound and 1.0 assist in one appearance.

 Portland’s roster now stands at 15.  

The Trail Blazers have 15 players on the roster, all with guaranteed money for the 2013-2014 season. Portland plays their final preseason game on Thursday at Golden State and Stotts said that he would like to get a “close resemblance to a rotation,” that they will use in the season.
