PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers have signed rookie forward Will Barton.

The team selected the 6-foot-6 swingman from Memphis in the second round of last month's NBA draft.

The 21-year-old averaged 18 points and eight rebounds for the Tigers last season. He led Conference USA in scoring and was its player of the year.

Barton becomes the second Memphis player on the Trail Blazers roster, joining guard Elliot Williams.
