The Trail Blazers have officially added guard Kris Dunn on a 10-day contract, and signed Drew Eubanks to a third 10-day deal, the team announced in a release.Kris Dunn

Dunn, 27, has not played this season after being waived by the Grizzlies in October. As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski noted, Dunn “gives the Blazers some backcourt depth with Anfernee Simons out 1-to-2 weeks.”

Injuries limited Dunn to four games with the Hawks last season. He appeared in 51 games with Atlanta the year before that, averaging 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 draft, Dunn spent his rookie year with the Timberwolves. He has appeared in 231 games overall, compiling career averages of 8.2 points and 4.1 assists.

The Hawks traded him to the Celtics at the end of last season, and then the Celtics traded him to the Grizzlies. He has remained an NBA free agent since being waived by Memphis, though he has spent time in the G League.

Eubanks is actually landing his third 10-day deal. He has fared well with the Blazers since signing his first 10-day, averaging 9.6 points and 8.1 rebounds in 10 appearances (through Saturday). His most recent 10-day expired Sunday evening.

“The Blazers, who are missing several players due to long-term injuries, completed Eubanks’ first two 10-day deals using an injury-related hardship exception, so he can continue to play under 10-day agreements,” explained Arthur Hill of Hoops Rumors.

Eubanks, 25, is 6-foot-9 and was part of a trade-deadline day deal that sent him from the Spurs to the Raptors, who immediately waived him. He initially signed with the Blazers on Feb. 21.
