The Blazers currently have 16 players headed to camp — meaning four spots still remain.

Beasley, 32, is 6-foot-9 and actually spent time with Portland in summer league. He last appeared in the NBA during the 2018-19 season with the Lakers.

The former No. 2 overall draft pick has also spent time with the Knicks, Heat, Bucks, Rockets, Suns and Timberwolves. He averaged 7.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in his most recent season.

Patterson, 32, is 6-8 and appeared in 32 games with the Clippers last season, compiling averages of 5.2 points and 2.0 rebounds. He has also spent time with the Thunder, Raptors, Kings and Rockets.
