    Because there's nothing to talk about. I can tell you how the Blazers draft is gonna go tomorrow.

    At pick 25 the Blazers pick *insert random guy here*. Nothing else happens rest of the night.

    Done.

    It's going to be that Windler guy lol, if I was a betting man I'd bet on it. Bazley will still be there and we'll be kicking ourselves

    I think they've had articles on our draft workouts, which are pretty underwhelming. I dunno what else we'd be looking for. Beat writers aren't generally the ones sharing rumors and such.

    Well definitely not the Blazers ones. Like seriously, what is Joe Freeman getting paid to do exactly? Besides “confirming” Wojs tweets of course.

    It's possible that minimal reporting is part of Olshey's plan. Would seem to fit with the player workouts/visits we've had as well...

    In fact I think drafting Kevin Porter has some poetic Justice.

    As I don't follow men's college basketball and don't know one agent from another, I can approach the draft without preconceptions

    I like Bazley a lot and if he there I hope we drafted but I got feeling he not the guy. I believe it will be either Windler or Okpala.

    Windler makes a lot of sense. 4 year guy, has a very well rounded offensive game, a lefty... he has a CJ Miles Type game.

    Man I really like Bruno Fernando, I think he fits too, so if he’s there at 25 and Bazley is gone, hmmmmm.

    Windler gives me Luke Babbitt flashbacks.
