Dillon Brooks Rumors
Oliver Maroney: Dillon Brooks (@dbrookz8) will have a 2nd pre-draft meeting/workout with the Phoenix Suns sources tell @thepositionless.
As they continue to prepare for the 2017 NBA Draft on June 22, the Portland Trail Blazers are hosting Kentucky forward Bam Adebayo, Florida State guard Dwayne Bacon, Oregon guard/forward Dillon Brooks, Adelaide 36ers guard/forward Terrance Ferguson, Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes and Maryland guard Melo Trimble for a pre-draft workout at their practice facility in Tualatin. Saturday’s workout is the fourth of six scheduled workouts. The Trail Blazers currently own the 15th, 20th and 26th picks.
While the Bucks are almost certain to have Rabb on their short list for their first-round pick, they’ll likely be giving serious consideration to tabbing Dillon Brooks with their second-round pick, No. 48 overall. The 6-foot-7 Brooks is coming off a stellar junior season at Oregon, where he averaged a team-leading 16.1 points while shooting 49 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc.
The Hawks were assigned 12 players to interview at the recently completed NBA Scouting Combine. There were 67 draft-eligible players at the combine in Chicago where many took part in drills and scrimmages. NBA teams are assigned players for individual interviews. The Hawks interviewed: Jarrett Allen, Texas, Center; Jawun Evans, Oklahoma State, Point Guard; John Collins, Wake Forest, Power Forward; T.J. Leaf, UCLA, Power Forward; Frank Jackson, Duke, Point Guard; Monte Morris, Iowa State, Point Guard; Harry Giles, Duke, Center; Dillon Brooks, Oregon, Small Forward; Donovan Mitchell, Louisville, Shooting Guard; Dwayne Bacon, Florida State, Small Forward; Caleb Swanigan, Purdue, Power Forward; Justin Patton, Creighton, Center.
