Coach Terry Stotts said Tuesday that Frazier will play for the Blazers' at the Las Vegas Summer League in July and be invited to participate in training camp next fall for the start of the 2015-16 NBA season. Frazier was scheduled to arrive into Portland Tuesday evening and will be in uniform for the Blazers' Wednesday night home game against the Los Angeles Clippers. "I have not seen him play, but from what I've been told, he's a good point guard, he's a good defender," Stotts said. "He's the kind of guy you would want in your program." Oregonian

Frazier, 24, is not expected to play -- barring an injury, he will be inactive against the Clippers -- but he will practice, giving the Blazers an extra guard during 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 drills and scrimmages. He will be eligible to play in the postseason. "Moving forward, I think it's in the best interest of the franchise," Stotts said. "This is not a playoff move. This is a moving forward move."

The Portland Trail Blazers have signed guard Tim Frazier for the remainder of the season, President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Frazier, 24, signed two 10-day contracts with the Philadelphia 76ers last month, averaging 5.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 1.00 steal in six games (three starts). NBA.com

Mike Tokito: Because Frazier's time with 76ers was on 10-day contracts that expired, he is eligible to be on #Blazers' playoff roster. A player whose last 10-day deal expired before March 23, then signs a rest-of-season deal, is playoff eligible. Twitter @mtokito

Warriors star Stephen Curry had his nickname playfully besmirched by a fan at Portland, and the Trail Blazers made sure the sign that was held up was for all to see. Appearing on the video scoreboard late in the game was the fan holding up a sign that read, “Steph is a girl name.” By that point, Curry was well on his way to a night in which he racked up 33 points and 10 assists as the Warriors would capture their first division championship in 39 years.

Damian Lillard admonished a shoe-seller on Tuesday after he spotted a pair of his shoes — with his signature — for more than twice the retail value on an online marketplace. “Good deed gone bad?” he asked the alleged salesman on Twitter (though the Twitter account linked to the seller hasn’t been active for years.) In the Facebook group, Portland Sole Society, where the shoes were listed, the seller defended himself, writing that he didn’t think Lillard did such a huge favor for him. “Damian still acting like he gave them to me and not Adidas. Maybe he should’ve said what’s up to some people instead of jetting out the back after the 21st signature was signed,” he wrote. “But who cares, he increased the value of the shoe and everyone outside the state of Oregon who saw this thinks its a non issue. Only people its an issue for are you sour Portland fans. Grow up.” For The Win

Aldridge and Batum started the game, but suffered injuries in the first half and didn't return to action after halftime.

Batum tweaked his back in the first half and did not return to the game. He was 0-for-4 with two rebounds in 15:19 before leaving the game with an injury. X-Rays on Aldridge's left hand came back negative. Oregonian
