Ian Furness of FAN 1080 in Portland - The FAN 1080's Ian Furness reported in his blog today that Tyrus Thomas has cancelled his workout in Portland after being promised a top-3 spot in this year's NBA Draft.
Most speculate that the Bulls are the most likely candidate to have promised him the spot.
There will be more news on this as it is available.
Could this mean that the Bulls already know that the Raps are taking LaMarcus so the Bulls are promising Tyrus at the number 2?
Or could the Raptors be taking Tyrus since he's come back to Toronto for workouts numerous of times already.
I wouldn't be suprised if the raptors promised him at the #1 pick. Think about it.
-He's coming back to Toronto this Saturday for his 3rd workout with the raps
-He can play D, Rebound, Block Shots
-Colangelo said himself as a GM you can't be afraid to make moves because of what other people think
-Colangelo has gotten guys to play crazy positions, maybe he has something in mind with Tyrus?
-Colangelo likes and drafted Shawn Marion, Tyrus is compared to Shawn on different draft sites, maybe Tyrus is our new Shawn Marion?
If the Raptors draft Tyrus then Colangelo throws all of his credibility away. He's smarter than that, he wouldn't do it. Tyrus is the last thing we need, he is a tweener between SF and PF...we already have two of those as the cornerstones of our franchise. There is NO reason for us to select Tyrus.
