Blazers Plan To Release Ryan Gomes

Gomes, who was aquired in a draft day trade with the Timberwolves, was told not to even travel to Portland. From the Oregonian: “Team president Larry Miller said the Blazers will probably release newly acquired forward Ryan Gomes in order to avoid taking on the remaining three seasons of his contract. The team has until Tuesday to make a decision, but Miller said he has already told Gomes’ agent not to fly him to Portland.”

  • spit hot fiyah

    gomes is solid, thought he could be geico if batum goes down again

  • Celts Fan

    WHY??? Dude’s game is built to be on a good team. Come back to Boston!!! We’d love to take him back.

    Gomes kinda got a raw deal. But since hes out of Minny is Webster going to start over Love?

    solid player but not a blazers type player.. boston will happily pick him up if he wants to come back

  • underdog

    @CC413 What kind of player is a “blazers type player”? It’s not the early 2001 anymore, the blazers has no team identity. I miss the jail blazers era.

    He was only a salary dump for the blazers. Someone will pick him up.

    what? doesn’t make any sense. he’s a better player at SF than any other blazer other than batum who is supposed to be good but hasn’t really shown it consistently yet. I’m not sure why the blazers keep wanting to start batum when he really doesn’t do much.

    Gomes will find a team. Could be a bargain for any squad looking for a SF. He can start too. I wouldn’t be surprised if a team like the Spurs would pick him up. Every summer they seem to get players which always make me post: “And the rich got richer”.

    I like Gomes, but Danny Ainge, please stay away. Celts have enough ‘tweeners as it is.

    The Knicks can make him their big summer acquisition.

  • Roc

    Knicks should spent their salary cap by signing Gomes and Morrison to long-term max contracts.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    i kinda like him but Roy, Rudy, Batum, Dante Cuningham, Luke Babbit, Elliot Williams might be enough wings.

    Bobcats please step on this!

    Well @Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers, you can say adios to Rudy. Their starting five is iffy except for Batum and Roy. I think I’d start PG-Roy, someone here at SG, Batum, Aldridge, and Od-looking-en. If only Olden’s knees could take a landing.
