Portland is in the market for a veteran center who can take some pressure off of rookie Jeff Withey and second-year big man Meyers Leonard, and Tiago Splitter is one player they are reportedly very interested in. However, there is a report today that suggests that the Trail Blazers may have a difficult time landing the restricted free agent.
