NBPA Player Portraits

On Friday, the Portland Trail Blazers officially parted ways with center Festus Ezeli after his one and only season with the team, declining to pick up his one-year option.

Ezeli, who never played a game in his only season with Portland, will still get $1 million for next season after making $7.4 million last season.

Ezeli participated in one practice for the Blazers, 0 games, and will walk away with $8.4 million for doing absolutely nothing besides being injured.

Ezeli has a history of problems with both knees that dates back to his time with Golden State—during which he was forced to miss the entire 2013-2014 season as well.
