Blazers plan to sign Jaylen Adams as substitute player, sources say

The Portland Trail Blazers plan to sign guard Jaylen Adams as a substitute player to replace Trevor Ariza, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Adams was the G-League's MVP runner-up this season with the Wisconsin Herd. He averaged 21.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.7 assists in 33 games for Wisconsin.

Ariza is opting out of participation in the NBA's Orlando, Florida, restart of the season, committing instead to a one-month visitation window with his young son, sources told Wojnarowski last week.
