Saric is considered a lottery pick, but he is not at the Chicago combine
On the same trip that Olshey made to France in late April to scout Gobert, he stopped in Croatia to scout 6-10 SF Dario Saric.
By the way, the French center Gobert says his goal is to be a top 7 pick. Not sure that's going to happen.
Plumlee touted his length and athleticism. "I'd like to be with a team that likes to get out and run," Plumlee said.
Duke C Mason Plumlee said he believes he will workout with the Blazers. "I'm a guy who is ready to come in and play right away," he said.
Gobert said he is good friends with Nic Batum and recently spent time with the Blazers forward in Paris
Maryland center Alex Len said he has no interviews scheduled with Portland at the combine.
Gobert had the longest wing span at the NBA Combine 7'8.5", but was less-than-impressive in his leaping - 25 standing vertical, 29 max vert
Blazers GM Neil Olshey flew to France to scout French center Rudy Gobert at the end of April. "I showed what I had to show," Gobert said.
Duke PG Seth Curry officially stands 6' 1" without shoes, 6' 3" with shoes. He's at 9 percent body fat, highest among PGs attending combine.
Gonzaga lottery bound C Kelly Olynyk stands 6' 10.75" without shoes and 7' 0" with shoes. His wingspan is 6' 9.75" and he's at 6.7 body fat.
Without shoes UCLA lottery prospect G/F Shabazz Muhammad stands 6' 4.75". With shoes he's 6' 6.25". He's at 9 percent body fat.

What y'all up to????
Great workout today!
Most bigs at the combine mentioned they've worked on their outside shooting since last collegiate game. The stretch four/big is here to stay
Of note on Franklin: His wing span was measured at 6-foot-11 1/4 ... In other words, very impressive
Franklin said he considers himself one of the best defenders in the draft. He compares his offense to JR Smith and his defense to Tony Allen
Franklin said he thinks Blazers sent psychologist Dana Sinclair because teams question his character. "Because I'm a warrior on the court.''
San Diego St. SG Jamaal Franklin met with the Blazers yesterday, and the whole meeting consisted of a psychological test taken on a computer
K get a hand up!
I'd like to see these guys compete... They shouldn't give the option to sit out...
I will be at Brewster this weekend for the alumni game. What other alumni will be there?
One of Portland's offseason targets is at SG. Michael Carter-Williams said he played SG in high school. "I'm a natural at it,'' he said.
Michael Carter-Williams on the Blazers: "They have a PG in Damian Lillard, who is a great player, but I'm capable of playing with anybody.''
I have no idea how good CJ McCollum is, but he has an All-Interview future ahead of him. Presents himself very, very well
Michael Carter-Williams said he also interviewed with OKC, Minnesota, Detroit and Charlotte
Lehigh G CJ McCollum will not interview with the Blazers this week, he said
Carter-Williams said he thinks he can play both PG and SG and that his size allows him to defend SG
Carter-Williams said Blazers asked him about his body language (which he says could be better) and whether he would accept coming off bench
Syracuse guard Michael Carter-Williams said he interviewed yesterday with Blazers
PG Michael Carter-Williams says he's hearing he could go anywhere from 3-15 in the upcoming draft.
Best interview/personality of the day at Chicago combine: Pittsburgh center Steven Adams. Great sense of humor, engaging, self-aware
Thing to keep in mind re: players interviews w/teams at Chicago combine: Some teams dont interview players they intend to fly in for workout
Bucknell's Mike Muscala - a stretch 4 who was coined by ESPN's Chad Ford as a "super sleeper" - says he has workout scheduled with Portland
A much needed haircut now
Great workout this morning!!!!!
Muhammad said Blazers asked him impressions of team. " I told them great team ... I feel like I fit really well with their program.''
Southerland said he is scheduled to interview with the Blazers today in Chicago
Syracuse wing James Southerland (6-foot-8) says he offers shooting and defense and compared himself to Houston's Chandler Parsons
Shabazz Muhammad said he thinks he is better suited to play shooting guard at the NBA level. Blazers interviewed him yesterday in Chicago
UCLA G/F Shabazz Muhammad and Syrcause F James Southerland have interviewed with the Blazers at the Chicago Combine. Teams get 18 interviews
