Portland Trail Blazers Workout Tony Mitchell
On Thursday the Portland Trail Blazers opened their first pre-draft workout at their practice facility in preparation for the 2013 NBA Draft with no big names.
Shooting guard Dexter Strickland (North Carolina), small forward Adonis Thomas (Memphis), shooting guard BJ Young (Arkansas), small forward James Ennis (Long Beach State), power forward Richard Howell (North Carolina State), and power forward Tony Mitchell (North Texas) were the prospects in attendance.
Mitchell is the only player projected to go in the first round.
In two seasons, Mitchell averaged 13.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.8 blocks in 31 minutes per game. After his freshman season, he was awarded Sun Belt Freshman of the Year and First Team All-Sun Belt. The 6-8 power forward is also the school’s all-time career blocks leader.
