NBA Draft: Blazers plan to use both first-round picks

Whatever offers the Portland Trail Blazers have received for their first-round draft picks, they haven't been enough. According to a tweet from Portland Oregonian beat writer Jason Quick, new Blazer GM Neil Olshey plans to take advantage of what is considered to be a fairly deep and talented draft pool.



The most recent SI mock draft has the Blazers picking Connecticut center Andre Drummond at #6 and North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall at #11. The Blazers have a need at both positions, especially with incumbent point guard Raymond Felton open to testing the free agent waters once his contract expires on July 1.
