PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Trail Blazers signed rookie Jeff Pendergraph a day before the forward is set to have hip surgery.
Terms of the deal Tuesday were not disclosed.
The team says Pendergraph is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday to correct a left hip impingement. A timetable for his return will be determined afterward.
The 6-foot-9 Pendergraph was the 31st overall pick in the NBA draft by Sacramento. The Blazers acquired him in a draft-day trade.
Pendergraph averaged 14.5 points as a senior at Arizona State last season.
