Default Top Prospects Declining

Wish they'd name the guys they're trying to get in who are declining:




A number of top prospects have declined workouts with the Trail Blazers, citing the team's successful young roster.

"We're fighting to get some of these kids in for workouts," said Chad Buchanan, Portland's director of college scouting.

After having more than 15 separate workouts prior to last season's NBA Draft, the Blazers have a total of just eight scheduled this year.

"The agents are saying, 'Where is my guy going to play for you guys? I understand you like him and you may move up (in the draft) to get him, but I don't know if I want him playing for you,'" Buchanan said. "Even though we have a history of being able to move up in the draft to get the (prospect) we like, we're having trouble bringing guys in for workouts."

Portland general manager Kevin Pritchard and his staff attended two "Supercamps" in Oakland and Minnesota, where they were able to evaluate 68 prospects.

Taking Blake Griffin out of the picture, if the Blazers could swing a deal to move up in this year's draft and we were able to keep the players YOU think we need to keep, which draft prospect would you most be interested in???
