The Portland Trail Blazers signed free-agent Travis Diener on Wednesday to fill their final roster spot.
Diener, a 6-foot-1 point guard, played four games for Indiana earlier this season before undergoing surgery on his big toe. The Pacers released him on Monday.
``We're very happy to have Travis on our roster,'' Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard said. ``He is a veteran point guard who will be a good complement to our existing backcourt.''
The 28-year-old Diener began his career in Orlando and posted career-highs of 6.9 points and 3.8 assists in 2007-08 with the Pacers.
