The Trail Blazers will conduct their first predraft workout at the practice facility on Tuesday, and according to the Oregonian's Joe Freeman, two centers likely to be selected in the first round will be center stage. Via Freeman's twitter account
The #Blazers 6-player workout will include: Tyler Zeller, C, UNC; Meyers Leonard, C, Illinois; Garrett Sim, G, Oregon, Casper Ware, G, Long Beach State; Kent Bazemore, G, Old Dominion; Kris Joseph, SF, Syracuse.
Zeller and Leonard are highlights of the #Blazers 1st workout. The touted center prospects are viewed as 1st-rd locks and lottery possibles.
For what it's worth, ESPN.com's Chad Ford has the Trail Blazers selecting Zeller
with the 11th pick, with Leonard going to the Magic at pick 19. Ware, who, at a hair under 5-10, was the shortest player measured
at a recent workout in New Jersey, is expected to be drafted in the second round
. Same goes for Joseph.
Just a reminder that we'll be streaming live from Tuesday's workouts as soon as it opens to the media, which should be around 9:30 AM.
The team has confirmed Freeman's list of workout participants.
