Blazers Excited After Ezeli Joins On $15.2m Deal


D'Tigers star Festus Ezeli's two-year deal to join the Portland Trail Blazers worth $15.2m has caused a buzz with the team.


The Nigerian became an unrestricted free agent after the Warriors relinquished their rights to him after they got a commitment from seven-time NBA All-Star Kevin Durant.

Ezeli who is expected to star for Nigeria's basketball team at the 2016 Rio Olympics will earn $7.4 million next season from the Blazers with a team option paying him $7.33 million the second season.

According to NBA.com, Blazers President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey believes the 6-foot-11 Ezeli will add value to the team.

"Festus is an outstanding addition to the Trail Blazer organization on and off the court," Olshey said in a statement.

"He will make an immediate impact and be a valuable addition to our culture."

Ezeli averaged 7.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks with the Warriors last season. He was a member of their 2015 NBA championship team.
