The Portland Trail Blazers have signed rookie Nassir Little to a contract. The terms were undisclosed. The Blazers drafted Little with the 25th pick in the 2019 NBA draft.
Little, who was a top high school prospect and a solid player for North Carolina was projected to go in the lottery, but surprisingly fell to the Blazers who eagerly put aside all of their draft plans to pick him.
Little, a 6’6 forward averaged 9.8 points and 4.6 rebounds in one season with the tar heels. He will help replace Jake Layman.
