Joel Pryzbilla To Sign With Portland Blazers, According To Report

After a few weeks of waiting, free agent center Joel Pryzbilla has chosen to sign with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. It had been rumored that the center was primarily selecting between the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls, but it appears that he's decided to go west.

Pryzbilla, 32, hasn't played yet this season after splitting last season between Portland and the Charlotte Bobcats. Drafted by Milwaukee with the ninth overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft, he joined Portland in 2004 and didn't leave until being traded to Charlotte last year.

Standing at 7-foot-1, he's the prototypical center that clogs up the post, offering rebounding and defense but little to nothing in terms of offensive skills. He's started at least nine games in each of his 11 NBA seasons, but he's averaged just four points per game in his career.
