Trail Blazers exercise three important team options

On Wednesday, the Portland Trail Blazers picked up fourth-year team options on C.J. McCollum and Mason Plumlee's contracts, and a third-year team option for Noah Vonleh.This is standard operating procedure; these moves were expected. Rookie-scale contracts are the most valuable non-max deals in the league. Unless you're godawful and don't appear ready or willing to ever get better...

Portland Trail Blazers Roster Breakdown – CJ McCollum

Ushering in a new era of Portland Trail Blazers basketball seems to be the theme of the 2015 NBA offseason. The Rip City roster no longer resembles the crew that had back-to-back 50-win seasons over the past two years, but one thing it can hang its hat on is that youth and potential have become the beacons of hope in an otherwise confusing time. In a 15-part series, Oregon Sports...

Watch Meyers Leonard and C.J. McCollum talk about Portland's upcoming season

McCollum, offer hope that the rebuild won't last very long....

How did Steve Nash help C.J. McCollum over the summer?

Steve Nash is a two-time MVP and one of basketball's all-time on-court visionaries. He could read defenses like a book; manipulate the opposition into playing a certain way whether he had the ball or was off it. Anybody trying to learn the point guard position should study Nash's every move. Portland Trail Blazers' guard C.J. McCollum did one better by working out with the man himself...

C.J. McCollum Talks Damian Lillard, His Game And The 2015-16 Portland Trail Blazers

By Joshua Vinson / @TheJoshAVinson There are three seasons in the NBA: the regular season, the postseason and the free-agency season, which may be just as interesting as the first two. Every team goes through this, but one team saw a complete face-lift to its starting core this offseason. The Portland Trail Blazers, a team that was a tweak or two away from competing in the NBA Finals...

Blazers' C.J. McCollum jabs at former teammate on Twitter

C.J. McCollum was essentially Wesley Matthews' backup on the Portland Trail Blazers last season. The second-year combo guard entered games looking to get his own shot and score in bunches, but he wasn't nearly as capable on the defensive end, or quite as deadly as a high-volume spot-up three-point threat.Now Matthews is gone, and McCollum's role in Portland has grown. On the surface...

Portland Trail Blazers Would Be Smart To Rely Heavier On C.J. McCollum Next Year

The Portland Trail Blazers already have a star point guard in Damian Lillard and hope to retain his backcourt mate, soon-to-be free-agent shooting guard Wesley Matthews, who might be the team’s most valuable player. Given the franchise’s desire to keep this duo intact, backup guard C.J. McCollum is left with less than ideal minutes. While that might be the case, he has the...
