The Trail Blazers have waived center Norvel Pelle, general manager Joe Cronin announced in a press release. This after he had signed an Exhibit 10 contract back in early August.
Pelle, 28, is 6-foot-10 and signed a 10-day deal with the Jazz in January, appearing in three games. He signed a 10-day deal with the Celtics in late December, though he did log any minutes. Before that, he had been playing with the Cleveland Charge of the G League, averaging 8.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.
He has spent time in the NBA with the 76ers, Nets, Knicks and Kings, compiling career averages of 2.1 points and 2.5 rebounds.
Portland now has 18 players on their offseason roster. The Pelle move comes shortly after the news that the Blazers intend to sign former Thunder center Olivier Sarr, as we relayed here.
