Blazers sign Darius Morris to their training camp roster.

Morris signed a non-guaranteed contract to try and land a spot on the Blazers roster this season. He bounced around to three different teams last year and averaged just four points and one rebound in just under 12 minutes per game over 27 games played. The Blazers are fairly well-stocked at the guard position, but Morris has some decent experience as a role-player.

Blazers have signed former Syracuse forward James Southerland to a one-year, non guaranteed deal.

Southerland spent the majority of time in the D-League last year and averaged 14.7 points (on 49.8 percent shooting), 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 threes, one assist, 0.9 blocks, and 0.8 assists in 28.6 minutes. He was brought up by the Pelicans towards the end of the season where he quietly filled a reserve role.

Thomas Robinson underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb Tuesday, but expected to be ready for training camp. 

The former Kansas Jayhawk hasn't done much in the NBA. Even though he's had some good games at the pro level, he is too inconsistent and has been a bust in the NBA. His fantasy value is very limited as long as LaMarcus Aldridge is healthy.

Vegas Summer League Day 7: Will Barton doubled up with 15 points and a game-high 10 rebounds (four offensive) in a losing effort Thursday.

On the surface the stat line looks nice, but the second-year player out of Memphis went a combined 4-of-19 from the field (1-of-7 3-pointers) to get the 15 points. He has now made just four triples in 18 tries over four games in Vegas while shooting under 40% from the field in three of those four games. In addition, his decision making has not been the best as he has 15 turnovers, including 10 over his last two games. Barton flashed some upside at times last season, just as he has this summer, but if he hopes to be a player who can garner consistent minutes he will have to show he can be a more efficient and reliable offensive player.

Thomas Robinson (right thumb ligament tear) will be out for the remainder of the Blazers NBA Summer League.

Robinson was putting up solid numbers in Summer League, so this is a disappointment. He should be ready for the start of the 2014-15 season.

LaMarcus Aldridge withdraws from Team USA, teammate Damian Lillard is still a go.

Aldridge didn't really give a reason for withdrawing his name from the list, but it is assumed that he wants to rest up for the upcoming season. Lillard is still just a 23-year old kid so he's going to stay involved.

Update: Meyers Leonard (shoulder strain) is expected to miss at least Sunday’s Summer League game against the Houston Rockets.

Leonard, who was hurt by his own teammate Joel Freeland, will have to wait a couple games before getting another opportunity to attempt to prove himself worthy of having been selected 11th overall by the Blazers in the 2012 Draft after just two years at the University of Illinois. While many fans are willing to give up on Leonard already, dynasty league owners need to realize that even if healthy the kid was/will take a few years to flash his potential, especially after the team had signed Robin Lopez prior to the start of last season. Regardless, Leonard does not project to be a starting center in the NBA, but could be a valuable asset off the bench, which is not what fantasy owners nor fans want or expect from a lottery pick but will have to learn to expect it seems.
