Kotoch: Blazers Take Drummond, Marshall In 2012 NBA Mock Draft

401
Joe Kotoch of SheridanHoops.com projects the Portland Trail Blazers will select UConn center Andre Drummond and UNC point guard Kendall Marshall in his 2012 NBA Draft. ---------------------------------- 6. Trail Blazers – Andre Drummond, C, Connecticut The Blazers are looking to pair LaMarcus Aldridge with a big man to help take the pressure off of him on both ends. I have Drummond falling to them at #6, and if that happens Portland’s new GM, Neil Olshey, can grab a player who has one of the highest ceilings in the entire draft. Drummond has had an impressive combine with his measurements and interviews. 11. Trail Blazers – Kendall Marshall, PG, North Carolina Another big northward mover in Mock 2.0. After suffering through last season with Raymond Felton, the Blazers would greatly benefit from the improved point guard play that Marshall would bring. Marshall isn’t a great scoring threat at this point but can be a good facilitator and make the team around him better. Marshall has very good court awareness and is a very skilled passer. ---------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
