Blazers sign rookie Pendergraph

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 8 (UPI) -- First-round draft pick Jeff Pendergraph signed a contract Tuesday with the Portland Trail Blazers, a day before he is scheduled to have hip surgery.

The NBA club didn't reveal the terms of its deal with the rookie forward, who it obtained from Sacramento in a draft-day trade.

Pendergraph, the 31st pick overall in the 2009 draft, needs the operation to correct a left hip impingement. It's not known when he will be ready to play.

Pendergraph averaged 12.6 points and 7.5 rebounds in four seasons at Arizona State.
