Amick: Blazers Want To Trade Up To 3 To Draft Dion Waiters?

Sam Amick of SI.com reports that the Portland Trail Blazers could look to trade up from the No. 6 spot to the No. 3 pick held by the Washington Wizards in order to select Syracuse guard Dion Waiters. ---------------------------- One executive said on Wednesday night that Cleveland (No. 4) was under the impression that Portland was attempting to use its No. 6 pick to get Washington's No. 3 pick and draft Syracuse shooting guard Dion Waiters. Then Yahoo! Sports reported that the Cavs -- who were at the front of that line of teams trying to get to No. 2 in order to pick Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal -- were seriously considering Waiters at No. 4. While Waiters is known to be in the Cavs' mix, sending out the message that he's their guy at No. 4 could lead to Beal's landing in their lap. Here's that scenario: The Bobcats select Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson, as many expect them to do if they keep the No. 2 pick. Then the Trail Blazers, if successful in obtaining the third pick, take Waiters there, leaving Beal to Cleveland. ---------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
