OK, here's a crazy question with no basis whatsoever:
One of the surprises at the Chicago pre-draft combine is that Jon Brockman didn't show up to be measured and participate in drills.
Nobody appears to know why, leading to speculation that it's because (1) he has a 1st round guarantee from a team he likes; or (2) he has a guarantee from Europe.
So my question is, is there any chance the Blazers are the 1st round guarantee? He's local, he's a backup 4, he supposedly played well at the Portsmouth camp...
Any chance he's the poor man's DeJuan Blair and your newest Portland Trail Blazer?
