Will Barton's future with Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers signed Will Barton, the No. 40 pick in the 2012 NBA draft, to a three-year contract. Next season's salary of $915,243 is not guaranteed unless he's on the roster beyond 5 PM Eastern on July 31. Barton prefers to stay with the Blazers, but knows GM Neil Olshey may let him go to look at other options.
