Blazers waive forward Gomes
Gomes, a five-year NBA veteran, averaged 10.9 points and 4.6 rebounds last season with the Timberwolves.
Portland picked up Gomes and Luke Babbitt, the 16th overall pick, from Minnesota in exchange for forward Martell Webster.
The move helps take the Blazers below the luxury tax threshold.
