Report: Blazers interested in free agent C Joel Przybilla

Thursday February 23rd, 2012

The Portland Trail Blazers are showing interest in center Joel Przybilla, according to the Associated Press. Any deal with the team would be contingent on a physical.

Przybilla spent six seasons in Portland before he was dealt to Charlotte a season ago, and the Blazers would have to cut a current player to make roster space for Przybilla.

There have been reports that the deal has already been made, but the AP is reporting that the deal is not final and Przybilla will be taking a physical sometime this week.

"It appears imminent," Przybilla's agent, Bill Duffy, told the AP.

Przybilla has averaged 4.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in his 11-year NBA career.
