The Portland Trail Blazers have signed shot-blocking center Ibou Badji to a two-way contract and waived center Olivier Sarr, the team announced Friday.
The 7-foot-1 Badji averaged 7.4 points on 61.8% shooting with 6.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks over seven games with the Wisconsin Herd, the NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Sarr, signed to a two-way contract in September, appeared in four preseason games for the Blazers before injuring his wrist. He did not appear in a regular season game.
In addition to being a good shot blocker, Badji is a significant lob threat in the paint.
