Terry Stotts ripped his team's defensive effort in Sunday's 106-94 loss to the Hornets.
"Very disappointed with the defensive effort and focus in the first half," Stotts said. "I didn’t think we gave it as much effort as we needed to be,’’ Stotts added. "I didn’t think we were as focused mentally as we needed to be on individuals and I thought those two things combined created a downward spiral." The Blazers are very much in the midst of a rebuild.

Blazers head coach Terry Stotts will not reveal who will start at power forward on Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

Meyers Leonard (shoulder) is out and his timetable is unclear, but Stotts expects to use a committee approach to absorb his minutes. "It’ll be by committee," Stotts said. "The 25 minutes or so Meyers is averaging will be divvied up among the other bigs. It’ll be a challenge because Memphis plays so much through the post with Gasol and Randolph, so it’ll be a challenge, but we’ll have to find a way." Moe Harkless, Ed David and Noah Vonleh will all be in the mix for more minutes in the short term, but this report makes it sound like there won't be a clear winner in terms of fantasy production. Expect Al-Farouq Aminu to play some four as well.

Coach Terry Stotts said the Blazers will "evolve" on offense this season.

He lost four of his starters, so things are going to be different. The Blazers were second in post-up scoring, fifth with roll-man scoring, and fourth in spot-up shooting last year. Obviously the loss of LaMarcus Aldridge is going to hurt them everywhere. Besides Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, there are a lot of question marks.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts would like to play "a little more uptempo" next season, but conceded that his team needs to improve their 3-point shooting.

"Our bigs can run, we’re probably a more athletic team, top to bottom, than we have been in the past," Stotts said. "Certainly getting out in transition, getting easy baskets is going to be important." Damian Lillard should be the primary beneficiary of a faster pace, but it also helps the prospects of Al-Farouq Aminu, Mason Plumlee, Meyers Leonard, Ed Davis, Gerald Henderson and everyone else who earns substantial playing time.

Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said that the team will miss LaMarcus Aldridge, but he added that they are ready to move forward without him.

"I knew it was going to be a close decision — it wasn’t an easy decision for him and it came down to the last minute," Stotts said. "I certainly respect his decision and it was a difficult one. And personally I thanked him for the three years I was here with him. He earned the right to be a free agent and we’re certainly going to miss him. But we move on." The Blazers deserve a lot of credit for adding some interesting young pieces in Noah Vonleh, Ed Davis, Al-Farouq Aminu, Moe Harkless and Mason Plumlee, and they were also able to re-sign Damian Lillard for five more years. The Blazers may not be a playoff team next season, but they will certainly be an exciting team to watch.

Trail Blazers GM Neil Olshey confirmed that Terry Stotts will return as the team's head coach in 2016-17.

"[Stotts] has just won 54 and 51 games [the past two regular seasons], and [the coaching staff] did a great job developing our guys," Olshey said, when asked about the possibility of replacing Stotts. "It wouldn't even cross my mind. The coaches did an outstanding job this season." The team extended Stotts' deal in Jan. 2015 and he'll take the reins again no matter what the Blazers' roster looks like after a momentous offseason.

The Trail Blazers have signed current GM Neil Olshey to a multi-year contract extension.

"Our team has made great strides under Neil’s leadership, and I am excited to extend his contract," said Blazers' owner Paul Allen. "Neil has done an outstanding job as General Manager by quickly rebuilding our team into a playoff contender. The franchise is clearly on the upswing, and I hope to see further improvements in the years to come."

Terry Stotts said that all the starters will play in Tuesday's preseason opener, but they will be limited to 20-25 minutes.

This is an expected move, as star players are generally eased into things and limited minutes are expected for the first preseason game. This means that Wesley Matthews is good to go, and it appears his heart issue is now behind him. The Blazers rotation is going to be very similar to what we saw last season, as all the offseason acquisitions they made were for role players. Don't overreact if C.J. McCollum has a big game, because he's not likely to cut into Wesley's minutes.

The Blazers signed head coach Terry Stotts to a "multi-year" extension on Thursday.

Details of the deal have not been announced, but Stotts earned his job security after leading the Blazers to a 54-28 season before losing to San Antonio in the second round of the playoffs. With LaMarcus Aldridge in his prime and rising star Damian Lillard under contract for at least three more years, the future is bright in Rip City.

The Blazers and head coach Terry Stotts are working on a multi-year contract extension, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Portland was bounced in the second round after their Game 5 loss on Wednesday to the Spurs. Still, Stotts led the Blazers to 54 wins, a 21-game improvement from his first year, and a second round playoff berth in a tough Western Conference. He has never coached for more than two seasons at his previous coaching stints, so it is clear he and Portland want to continue to build on their recent success.

The Trail Blazers announced on Tuesday that they reached a 10-year partnership deal with Moda Health and will rename the Rose Garden Arena the Moda Center at the Rose Quarter.

The deal is reportedly worth up to $4 million per year. Known as the Rose Garden Arena since 1995, the Moda Center will feature a picture of a rose in the logo at center court. The Palace of Auburn Hills, Madison Square Garden and New Orleans Arena are now the only current NBA venues without naming rights.
