Free-agent center, Festus Ezeli has signed a two-year deal with the Portland Trailblazers, paying him $15.2 million.
The Blazers will pay Ezeli $7.4 million next season with a team option paying him $7.33 million the second season.
“Festus is an outstanding addition to the Trail Blazer organization on and off the court,” Blazers president of basketball operations Neil Olshey said in a statement. “He will make an immediate impact and be a valuable addition to our culture.”
The 6-foot-11, 265-pounder averaged 7.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks with the Warriors last season.
The Nigerian basketballer became an unrestricted free agent, after the Warriors relinquished their rights to him. This was after they got a commitment from new player, Kevin Durant.
