Chris McGowan, the NBA club's president and chief operating officer, confirmed as much in an email Tuesday.

"Wheeler is definitely back," McGowan wrote. "Signed him to a multi-year extension. Still finalizing plans for additional radio team members for next season."

It's possible that former Blazer player Michael Holton — who has served mainly as a TV studio analyst and some as a sideline reporter over the past 10 years — will work alongside Wheeler as radio analyst during Portland home games next season.
