Blazers to Sign Joel Przybilla
If Przybilla passes his physical, the Blazers will have to waive a player to sign him. Candidates are second-year guard Armon Johnson, injured center Greg Oden, or second-year center Chris Johnson.
Przybilla is valued by the Blazers for his ability to rebound, block shots and set screens. One of the toughest and most respected players by his teammates during his tenure in Portland, Przybilla was a fan favorite.
“Everybody here knows Joel,’’ team president Larry Miller said Tuesday night. “You know what he brings to the table: toughness, rebounding, defense and the fans here love Joel. So he would be a great addition for our team. He brings defensive toughness and shot blcoking. Things that can help us.’’
