Agent: Przybilla Decision Coming Today
But behind the scenes, another game was being played Tuesday, and it was quite the nail-biter for Blazers management.
The game is the competition for the services of free agent center Joel Przybilla.
According to agent Bill Duffy, who spent halftime sitting courtside with team president Larry Miller, Przybilla is expected to make a decision Wednesday between signing with Miami, Chicago, Milwaukee or Portland … or remaining idle at his home in Milwaukee, where he is an All-Star father to his two sons.
“I think Portland is always the sentimental favorite for obvious reasons,” Duffy said. “Joel has a home here and he had the best years of his career here. And at this particular time, it looks like he is needed, too.”
