The Portland Trail Blazers have added three players to the team's training camp roster, including one well known to Pacific Northwest basketball fans.

The team announced Friday the signings of Adam Morrison, Demonte Harper and Dallas Lauderdale.

Morrison was a star player for Gonzaga and was the third overall selection in the 2006 NBA Draft.

A local radio station even organized a rally before the draft encouraging the Blazers to select Morrison.

It was called "Draft the Stache," in honor of Morrison's once-trademark mustache.

He spent four seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats and Los Angeles Lakers before recently playing in Serbia and Turkey.

Harper spent last season playing in Croatia, while Lauderdale was in Poland.

The Trail Blazers now have a training camp roster of 18 players.

The season begins on Oct. 31.
