Holdahl: Blazers Scout Buchanan Talks Combine

8
Casey Holdahl over at Blazers.com chatted with Portland Trail Blazers director of college scouting Chad Buchanan to get his reaction to this year's pre-draft combine. ------------------------------ "Yesterday we met with six players. By the end of (Thursday) it will be about nine or then total by the end of the day. Then (Friday) will be another five guys." ... "I think the group that is out there, there's some four-year players out there that are going to be solid. I think as far as potential stars in our league, not a real class for those players in this draft. I think after the top few guys there's some pretty solid players; I just don't think there's a lot of high ceiling guys." ------------------------------ Also of interest, Buchanan notes that he considers a player's ability to accurately self-assess his talents to be a crucial aspect of basketball IQ " That's part of your basketball IQ is you can look in the mirror and describe what you are as a player and be accurate, that's a reflection of a high basketball IQ player." -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
