No one would blame you if you didn’t watch much of the Blazers last season, as they were quite horrible due to multiple injuries taking out their biggest players and a massive trade package that stole away others.
They ended the season as the 13th seed with a 27-55 record.
And, yes, they did so with Bledsoe – well, kind of.
The Portland Trail Blazers plan to waive guard Eric Bledsoe ahead of his guarantee date approaching, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Entering his 13th NBA season, several teams are expected to pursue Bledsoe as a free agent.

The veteran guard, who has played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks, and New Orleans Pelicans, was traded to the Blazers from the Clippers before the deadline last season but an injury kept him on the bench and he never played a game in Rose City.
And now Bledsoe is headed out: Shams Charania reports that team will waive him ahead of the guarantee date.
There are multiple teams expected to pursue Bledsoe once he becomes a free agent so where will he land?
Bye Bye, Bledsoe
Throughout his career, Bledsoe has averaged 13.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 4.7 assists.
For a few years in Phoenix, Bledsoe was really cooking and was something special but his output has decreased over the years due to age and injuries.
Still, he can make an impact on the floor and would be a good bench guard for a number of teams in the league.
Plus, Bledsoe would probably come cheap too, making him even more attractive.
Don’t be surprised when Bledsoe gets swooped up quickly after becoming a free agent.
Hopefully he can stay healthy wherever he lands and once again put on a show.
