    Via BlazersEdge and Twitter

     Jason Quick of The Oregonian has confirmed the report on TwitterChris Haynes of CSNNW.comreports on Twitter that the one-year contract is worth $1.35 million.

    There it is guys, The Thrilla is wearing another jersey. Season before last, we had to see him in a Bobcats jersey, and this year, he will re-wear a Bucks uni. Milwaukee drafted him (via trade with Houston) with the 9th overall pick back in 2000, and he would spend three full seasons there before being moved to the Atlanta Hawks in his fourth.

    Share your favorite Przy memories of the last 8 seasons with the Vanilla Gorilla rocking Blazer jersey #10 and wish him the best of luck. (That includes the ladies who made him their Blazer-husband. : )

    Sad to see him play anywhere but here but I wish him all the best. He wasn't going to get any playing time here with Freeland and Leonard here now so I can see why he chose to go elsewhere.

    THIS SUCKS!  Pryzbilla would be able to teach our young centers so much, plus he would have been great for 8 to 10 minutes a game clogging up the middle.



    See you soon Joel, Portland will miss you.  My guess is he will be with Milwaukee 1/2 season and in up in Portland uniform by the end of the season.



    It is good for him, he is closer to home.



    Best of Luck

    Portland management is foolish, they waited so long that it told him "we don't really want you but as a plan #5 we will try to put a good face on this for the fans", if they really wanted him he should have been given an offer as soon aqs Hibbert fell through.

    I agree, Pryz has all of the intangibles you want in a Player.  He broughtso much more tot he team then his talent.

    i dont know about this new GM. i would have forgiven previous mistakes if they made good on the thrylla. it hurts me more to see joel in a different uniform than it does to see roy in a different uniform. joel was dedicated to this team and the city, he even choose here last year when we needed someone, he came through. he's been loyal to this team and the last 2 GM's have treated him like he's a throw away guy. the rose garden should hang golden gloves in the arena with #10 on them.

    The Rose Garden has Joel's Blood, Sweat, Tears and Body Parts on it.  He gave his all for this franchise and how was he treated by Allen, Cho and Olshey?  He was thrown under the bus and crapped on by them.

    I agree, I could care less about Roy, but Pry was the heart, sould and backbone of this team.

    I hope when he retires, that the Blazers honor him by hanging his Jersey with the other greats in Portland History.

    Pryz will be defintely missed but glad you are playing with someone who sees the intangibles you can bring to the team.

    I wanted Joel to retire here but in the end it's his decision. I wish him well. When the Blazers are off I'll have a reason to watch a Bucks game. We have bench bigs and this will add minutes to Leonard's rotation. Jeffries had the blood spinning work Kobe had in Europe and should be able to fill Pryzbilla's minutes without a problem. It's not like Joel's knees were solid. I understand the move, just really loved Joel's presence on the team and his picks. The team let Buck Williams go and we need to hire another big man coach. Surprised noone has addressed this yet. I'd consider Sheed to coach defense and post moves. He worked with Dwight Howard one summer and has a wealth of knowledge to help a guy like Leonard learn the ropes.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
