BATON ROUGE – Former LSU basketball player Tim Quarterman has signed a partially-guaranteed training camp contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to the NBA team website and the team’s president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.
Quarterman, who left LSU after his junior season, was an undrafted free agent and played in the Orlando portion of the NBA Summer League season with the Charlotte Hornets.
The 6-6 guard from Savannah averaged 5.8 points per game in five summer league games, averaging 2.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists while playing an average of 19 minutes a game. His best scoring and rebounding game was the finale with 12 points and eight boards.
According to Tim Brown of The Oregonian: “The LSU product is a versatile player who gives the Blazers yet another ball handler and adds further depth to Portland’s backcourt.
Quarterman played in 33 games a year ago for the Tigers, starting 27 of those contests. He averaged 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists.
