3 Free Agents The Portland Trail Blazers Should Pursue This Offseason

Operating under the (optimistic) assumption that both LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews find their way back to the Portland Trail Blazers in unrestricted free agency, there's still plenty of value free agent options who could pique management's interest when free agency starts on July 1st. Here's our list of 3 Free Agents The Portland Trail Blazers Should Pursue This Offseason.

SF Gerald Green

Down the stretch during the 2014-15 regular season and postseason, it seemed like CJ McCollum was the only true reserve scoring option the Blazers had at their disposal. Green would give them another at a budget price, even if he does cost them a mid-level exception in the neighborhood of $5.4 million. He averaged 11.9 points per game in 2014-15, shooting 41.6 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from beyond the arc. Those numbers are down from his career averages, and he could easily build off a stellar final month with the Suns with a fresh start in Portland.

PF Luis Scola

Looking for dependable scoring and rebounding off the bench? The 35-year-old Scola's your man. He's not a great defender by any means, but he did shoot 46.7 percent from the field with the Pacers last season and, combined with his 6.5 rebounds per game, would provide instant value at a salary which will likely dip under his $4.8 million mark in 2014-15.

SF Mike Dunleavy Jr.

Dunleavy is skilled enough as a defender to add some mid-range lockdown skills to the team's frontcourt rotation, and he's got the consistent scoring punch to be Portland's Weapon X whether starting or coming off the bench. If the Blazers don’t want to pay the relative premium Dunleavy could command, keep an eye on Minnesota’s Chase Budinger as a budget option.
