Norman Powell re-signed with the Portland Trail Blazers on a five-year, $90 million contract last offseason. Powell on that contract is "considered relatively valuable among league personnel" that spoke with Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.

When Powell negotiated his contract with the Blazers, the New Orleans Pelicans were a rival team his camp had discussions with.
