The team has until 3 p.m. Tuesday to waive Gomes or pick up a team option, which would guarantee his contract through the 2010-13 season. The Blazers are actively exploring potential trades for Gomes and internally debating whether he would be a good option for the team next season. Gomes averaged 10.9 points and 4.6 rebounds last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves and would give the Blazers a solid veteran presence off the bench. But he's slated to make between $4.6 million and $5 million in each of the next two seasons. If the Blazers waive Gomes, they would only owe him a total of $2.75 million -- including $1.75 million over the next two seasons -- and they would dip roughly $1.9 million below the luxury-tax threshold of the NBA salary camp.
