The Portland Trail Blazers have signed forward Derrick Jones Jr to a 2 year $19 million contract using their MLE. Jones, went to the NBA finals last season with the Miami Heat. He averaged 8.9 points and 3.5 assists for the 2019-20 season.
Though he doesn’t bring a a shooting touch to Portland ( He only shot 28% from deep last season) he is the current dunking champ and one of the best rim cutters in the NBA. He offers a much needed upgraded to the defense on the Blazers bench.
