Washington guard Tony Wroten worked out daily with Brandon Roy in Seattle, the hometown for both, before beginning a tour of teams and talks to the former Trail Blazers guard most every day. Six months after being forced into retirement by a knee injury, Roy, Wroten said, "dominates. I'm a good defender, I feel like, but, man, it's a little hard to stop him. He just gets to his spots. We're going to see. His knee looks great, though." NBA.com

Vanderbilt marksman John Jenkins, Kentucky's Doron Lamb and Oregon State's Jared Cunningham are among the shooting guards receiving high marks from Griz personnel. Scouts also seem impressed by point guard prospects Marquis Teague of Kentucky and Tony Wroten of Washington. However, Griz brass entertained swingmen Draymond Green (Michigan State) and Jae Crowder (Marquette) on Saturday with great interest because of a desire to also add more versatile, high basketball IQ players to the roster.
