Predraft Workout: Corey Fisher

Corey Fisher played four seasons with Villanova before entering the 2011 NBA Draft.

The 6-1 Guard was named Second Team All-Big East as a senior following him naming to the third team as a junior. In school history he ranks sixth in assists and 13th in points.



Freeman worked out for the Trail Blazers in a pre-draft workout on June 6th.

“Four year proven player comes from a great league,” said Chad Buchanan, the Trail Blazers acting General Manager and Director of College Scouting. “He’s really improved his game, especially his shooting, over the course of his career. Good with the ball, not a great athlete, and that’s something he’ll have to overcome, especially being a point guard and not having great speed and quickness, but tricky with the basketball and just a solid player."

With the ability to break down defense off the dribble his contributions to the Trail Blazers as a point guard would include scoring. Fisher also has the ability to hit from long-range making him a threat both inside and out.

  1. Not being fast or athletic worries me. How many good point guards can survive while being athletically challenged in the NBA? Dre and Nash are amazing players but those are the only two current players I can think of that make it work and they are craftier than anyone I've ever seen play the game.

  3. Slow is good if you know how to deliver the punch.
    Fast is good if you know how to use your speed.
    either can be effective if they are good BB playes.
