Maurice Harkless agrees to four-year deal with Portland

The forward will stay with the Trailblazers for the next four years.


Maurice Harkless will stay with the Portland Trailblazers after agreeing a four-year deal worth $40 million.

Portland traded for Harkless last year, acquiring him from the Orlando Magic for a second round draft pick. He proved to be a valuable asset off the bench, contributing an average of 6.4 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.

The Blazers see Harkless as an able defender that can play as a versatile forward when called upon. He impressed hugely in the playoffs last season where he scored 11 points and 5.1 rebounds on average against the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors.

This signing marks a summer of heavy spending in ‘The City of Roses’ as the team have committed to keeping Allen Crabbe ($75 million over four years), CJ McCollum ($106 million for four years) and Meyers Leonard (four-year contract worth $41 million), whilst also signing Evan Turner ($70 million over four years).
