Jeff Pendergraph has had a hard summer, to put it lightly. Coming into the preseason, the former ASU standout was ready to become a major contributor on the Portland Trailblazers. He had become a fan-favorite with his energy and larger-than-life personality.
Unfortunately, plans were derailed when he suffered a torn ACL in an October 7th preseason game, ending his season before it could begin.
Now it is being officially reported that the big man has been waived by the Portland Trailblazers.
Hopefully, this is only speed bump on a long and prosperous NBA career. Pendergraph is an exceptional young man and we here at SB Nation wish him luck and a quick recovery.
