Forwards Michael Beasley and Patrick Patterson are among the players on the Blazers’ radar ahead of training camp, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.

Beasley played for the Blazers’ Summer League team this offseason, though he last appeared in the NBA for the Lakers during the 2018-19 season. The former No. 2 overall draft pick has also spent time with the Knicks, Heat, Bucks, Rockets, Suns, and Timberwolves.

Patterson spent last season with the Clippers, appearing in 32 games for Los Angeles. He also has stints with the Thunder, Raptors, Kings, and Rockets.

The Blazers currently have 16 players headed to camp with NBA teams being allowed a maximum of 20.

More NBA Rumors

  • The Blazers and Clippers are among the teams with interest in former Cavs big man Isaiah Hartenstein, Scotto adds in the same piece. Hartenstein declined his $1.8 million player option with Cleveland earlier in the offseason.

  • Stanley Johnson’s contract with the Bulls is nonguaranteed, per Bobby Marks of ESPN. The former first-round pick is on a one-year, minimum salary arrangement.

  • Alize Johnson has a $250,000 guarantee if he’s not waived by the Bulls before October 19. The second year of that deal has a guaranteed date of July 2, Marks adds. Matt Thomas’ contract is also nonguaranteed.

  • The Nets recently acquired Sekou Doumbouya in a move that unloaded DeAndre Jordan‘s huge contract to the Pistons, but Spencer Davies of Basketball News believes the Pistons may have been too quick to move on from the 15th pick of the 2019 NBA Draft. Davies opines that Doumbouya’s athleticism and frame could’ve helped him eventually carve out a role in Detroit’s rotation.
