Blazers Consider McCollum with 10th Pick
As the Portland Trail Blazers hope to rebuild a broken roster through the NBA Draft tonight, their first choice should be simple.
Pick C.J. McCollum.
If the clock has expired on the previous nine teams and Commissioner David Stern has yet to call McCollum’s name, then there is no need for the Blazers to waste their five minutes.
With the 10th pick, take McCollum. He’s the answer in a draft dominated by unproven underclassmen and enigmatic entries. While no clear star stands out, McCollum should emerge from this class as a legitimate professional.
McCollum, a 6-foot-3 scoring point guard, may come from a school so far off the radar that the official NBA draft bios list his Lehigh as affiliated with “Small Conferences.” Also, it’s true that the Blazers already have a decent point guard in that Damian Lillard guy. Still, Portland could be just the place for McCollum.”
