Norman Powell Set To Return to Portland on Five-Year, $90 Million Deal

After acquiring Norman Powell at the trade deadline last season, he immediately became Portland’s top target to retain in free agency. With the Blazers doing everything they can to keep a competitive team around Damian Lillard, re-signing Powell would be a necessity.

As first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Portland was able to make this happen, agreeing to a five-year, $90 million deal with the high-scoring guard.

During the 2020-21 season, Powell averaged 18.6 points while shooting 41.1 percent from beyond the arc. Still just 28 years old, he significantly raises the ceiling of the Blazers as they look to be a legit contender this season.
