Blazers re-sign Outlaw
Portland, OR (Sports Network) – The Portland Trail Blazers re-signed forward
Travis Outlaw to a three-year contract on Wednesday. Terms of the deal
were not disclosed.
The 22-year-old Outlaw was originally selected by the Trail Blazers with the
23rd overall pick in the first round of the 2003 NBA Draft. In 67 games last
season, Outlaw averaged a career-best 9.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks
per game. He had a team-high 74 blocked shots.
“Travis enjoyed what we feel was a breakout season last year on both ends of
the floor,” said Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard. “His athleticism and
high-flying style of play add another level of excitement to the team and we
are thrilled to have him back.”
The four-year pro from Starkville High School (Miss.) holds career averages of
6.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 203 games with the Trail Blazers.
