Portland Considering Moving Up in Draft
“I hear it’s a great place for players. I’ve been there and I love it. I’m all about working hard and getting better everyday. I think playing in Portland will be good for me if I ended up there.”
That comes from 6-4 athletic shooting guard, Victor Oladipo, out of Indiana who is projected to be selected in the top five of the 2013 NBA Draft. The Portland Trail Blazers are slotted at the No. 10 spot with the NBA Draft Lottery this coming Tuesday.
Unless the Trail Blazers get the luck of the ping-pong balls and find themselves in the top three, the chances of them acquiring Oladipo are slim to none.
However, there are moving up possibilities.
Sources close to the prospect say the Trail Blazers, among a few others teams, “really like him” and are “considering moving up to get him.”
