Look no further than the lineup of players on Thursday as the best indication that the Portland Trail Blazers are indeed serious in their search for a true center.
In a pre-draft workout attended by team owner Paul Allen as well as Nicolas Batum, the Blazers matched the 7-foot-1 Frenchman Rudy Gobert with 7-footer Steven Adams, the New Zealander who played one college season at Pittsburgh.
While Olshey has also proclaimed that Portland will select the best player remaining on the board for its 10th pick in the NBA Draft next Thursday — regardless of position or even if the player doesn’t solve the Blazers’ most obvious shortcomings — the team has now worked out or met with five 7-footers projected as lottery picks, including Alex Len, Cody Zeller, Kelly Olynyk and Mason Plumlee.
