Joel Freeland focused on finding ways to gain playing time with Trail Blazers despite center logjam

Joel Freeland first played for the Trail Blazers' summer league team eight years ago, and at 27, he is older than the typical summer league player. But entering a key third year in his NBA career, and coming off a dissatisfying end to his breakout 2013-14 season, Freeland is all in on the opportunity to return to Las Vegas for the second year in a row, and fourth overall, as...

Has Joel Freeland toughened up this year? It appears he has from a production standpoint, however his teammates maintain he’s the same ol’ Joel. “Joel is probably the toughest European player that I’ve played against,” LaMarcus Aldridge told “I never questioned his toughness at all.

Reaching a deal between Freeland and Blazers is far from done

Back when the Portland Trail Blazers selected Joel Feeland 30th overall in 2006, the idea at the time was to draft and stash the big man over in Europe and let him develop his game.
