Holdahl: Syracuse G Michael Carter-Williams Doesn't Sound Thrilled About Blazers

USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers report that Syracuse guard Michael Carter-Williams doesn't particularly want to be drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports from a pre-draft media availability New York City that Syracuse guard Michael Carter-Williams isn't exactly falling all over himself at the thought of being selected by the Portland Trail Blazers at No. 10.

So you have to respect a player who actually speaks honestly at this point in the process, as I believe Syracuse sophomore point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who Chad Ford has the Trail Blazers selecting in his most recent mock draft, did today when asked how he'd feel about going to a team like the Trail Blazers, a team that already has an established player, in this case, Damian Lillard, at his position.

"I interviewed with Portland; I never went to work out with them," said Carter-Williams. "This year they had a point guard in Damian Lillard. If I get chosen by them, it's not something I can do, it's not a particular place where I choose to go, but I'd go there and make the best of it and then see what happens when my time comes."

Chad Ford of ESPN.com had Carter-Williams pegged to the Blazers in a mock draft on Tuesday.
