Nearly one week after shutting down its own regional sports network, the National Basketball Association's Portland Trail Blazers reached a multiyear carriage deal with Fox Sports Net Northwest to air its games.

Fox Sports will air 30 Blazers games beginning Nov. 20, marking the first time the regional sports network will air the team's games, Fox Sports Cable Networks president Bob Thompson said.

Last year, the Trail Blazers launched its own regional sports network, but the team pulled the plug on it last week after it failed to reach a carriage agreement with the market's dominant MSO, AT&T Broadband.

In previous years, the team distributed its games via pay-per-view.
