After another Blazers center went down in camp, they needed another big body for practice — a guy not likely to make the team but one to run through drills and the like.

Stephen Hill, come on down, according to the Oregonian.

Hill is a 7’0” center out of Arkansas who played on the Blazers’ Summer League team back in 2008 and had a cup of coffee with the Thunder two seasons ago.  He will not stick, he is there for camp only, but maybe he can jump start his hoops career again.

The Blazers need help at center after Jeff Pendergraph went down for the season with a torn ACL. Greg Oden and Joel Pryzbilla are both still out recovering from injuries.
