Following their acquisition of Kevin Knox yesterday, the Portland Trail Blazers have made another significant addition to their roster, securing a second big man in less than 48 hours as they prepare for the upcoming NBA season.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Portland Trail Blazers have signed George Conditt to an Exhibit 10 contract, a one-year minimum salary deal that allows the team to release players post-training camp while retaining G League rights.
The former Iowa State big man is set to join the Blazers’ training camp and is expected to play for their new G League squad, the Rip City Remix.
George Conditt will be looking forward to competing for a spot in the lineup behind the starting center, Jusuf Nurkić, during the training camp, where he’ll be contending with Moses Brown and Ibou Badji for that spot.
Conditt, a 6-foot-10, 245-pound center, had a four-year stint in the Big 12 with Iowa State, averaging 4.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks in 14.5 minutes per game across 117 collegiate appearances, with 36 starts.
