It's safe to assume that Olshey will not touch the starting five of Lillard, Wesley Matthews, Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and Lopez.

Damian Lillard, Miss Oregon 2014 Emma Palett and other Portland Trail Blazers players including CJ McCollum, Dorell Wright, Will Barton and Thomas Robinson were on hand at the Armory Annex building in Portland on Wednesday night to help ring in the new year and party their way into 2015. Lillard said he wanted to put on the event to have some fun on New Year's in Portland, but also as a benefit for the Brian Grant Foundation. "I'm pretty familiar with Brian Grant," Lillard said. "I've gotten to know him so I wanted to support that. I know with the Trail Blazers being the only show in town pretty much and me being one of the guys on the team I figured I could make people more interested in being a part of it and more money could be donated because of it."

But someone owned the website and Barton had to buy the rights to it, for “about $1200.” Barton says he doesn’t know who owned it, but he doesn’t seem to care much. “I don’t know,” Barton said when he was asked who owned it. “He didn’t need it, I need it. It’s my name.” The Columbian

The Trail Blazers' 15-man roster was officially settled Thursday morning, when Will Barton's 2014-15 contract became fully guaranteed. General manager Neil Olshey had the option of waiving the backup shooting guard this summer to create an open roster spot. But by keeping him on the roster until Thursday, Olshey ensured that his burgeoning talent would remain in Portland for at least one more season. Oregonian
