According to Hoops World, the Blazers spoke with Carlos Arroyo and his agent last week in Las Vegas while the summer league team was getting crushed by a bunch of nobodies. Apparently he wants a 2 year deal and a starting job if he's going to return to the NBA
Arroyo – who played overseas last season for Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel – and his agent Leon Rose want Carlos to return to the NBA in a starting role and are asking for two-year deal, but the source believes Portland doesn't see Arroyo as a fit for the Blazers in that capacity.I'm not really sure why Arroyo thinks he is anywhere near starting NBA PG territory, but kids are always free to dream. The Blake/Bayless tandem is a much more exciting and solid option than adding a guy that couldn't hack it in the NBA his first time around.
Prior to playing in the Israeli League, Arroyo played for Toronto, Denver, Utah, Detroit and Orlando before signing a three-year deal last summer with Maccabi, where he earned roughly $2.5 million. His best season as a pro came in 2003-04 with the Jazz where Arroyo started 71 games and averaged 12.6 points and 5 assists in 28.3 minutes per game.
