Austin Freeman played four seasons with Georgetown before entering the 2011 NBA Draft.
The 6-4 Guard was named honorable mention AP All-America as a senior and earned first and second team all-league titles during his junior and senior seasons. In his successful senior season Freeman led his team is scoring with 17.6 points per game including three 30-plus point games.
Freeman worked out for the Trail Blazers in a pre-draft workout on June 6th.
“Another four-year guy,” said Chad Buchanan, the Trail Blazers acting General Manager and Director of College Scouting. “A lot of these guys being four-year guys they’re very polished and put them in a work out like this and you don’t have to teach them a whole lot, you just let them play and Austin’s one of those guys he’s not gonna wow you athletically or do many things that are gonna catch your eye but the more you watch him the more you appreciate his intelligence, he can make shots, he understands positioning, sees the floor, just a solid all around guard.”
One of Freeman’s greatest attributes is his ability to move without the ball. This would benefit the Trail Blazers offense when it becomes stagnant. His movement allows his basketball IQ to shine through while contributing to opening up himself and his teammates.
