Maxey: Blazers G Jon Diebler Grows In Greece

13

Over at RidiculousUpside.com, Brother Wendell Maxey has a thorough feature on Portland Trail Blazers 2011 second pick Jon Diebler, guard from Ohio State, who signed this summer to play in Greece. ----------------------------- "It has really been a humbling experience as well, coming from being a senior at Ohio State to being a rookie here on this team. I have just tried to come out and do my best to help the team win. It has been a lot of fun though. I have really enjoyed it. Like I said before, the people involved with the club -- coaches, players, manager, and the team president -- have just been awesome and very professional. This year I'm just trying to help the team win, whatever that is. But as far as working on my game individually, I'm trying to improve on creating my own shot and continuing to get better defensively. The coaches have really helped me in all of these areas." ... "We will be tracking him closely this year obviously. We will stay in touch with his agent throughout the year," said [Blazers Acting GM Chad] Buchanan, with the two sides planning to discuss Diebler's future in Portland at the end of the season. ----------------------------- Some great details in there, including how Portland's international scout monitored Diebler's progress during the lockout given the no-contact rules. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
