Former Portland Trail Blazer and NBA All-Star Terry Porter was named as a new studio analyst and sideline reporter for Blazers Broadcasting Monday after earlier being named an assistant coach for the Lewis & Clark College Pioneers.
Porter will join the Trail Blazers broadcasting team for 76 games during the current season. He brings his 20-plus years of NBA experience as a player and coach to provide commentary along with Michael Holton.
Just last week, Porter was named as a new assistant coach at Lewis and Clark.
Porter spent 17 years in the NBA as a player, beginning his career with the Portland Trailblazers as the 24th overall pick in the 1985 draft from Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
He spent a decade with the Blazers, leading the team to the NBA Finals twice. Porter continues to hold the NBA Finals single-game record for the most free throws made without a miss with 15 (June 7, 1990 in Detroit), while being the Trail Blazers’ all-time assists leader with 5,319. In 1993, he received the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award. On Dec. 16, 2008 the Trail Blazers retired his #30 jersey.
