The Portland Trail Blazers brought in some big names for their fourth day of pre-draft workouts, including Kentucky big man Edrice “Bam” Adebayo and Adelaide forward Terrance Ferguson. Both are expected to be available in the mid-late first round, where the Blazers will make their second (20) and third (26) selections on draft day.
Other participants in Saturday’s workout included Oregon’s Dillon Brooks, Florida State’s Dwayne Bacon, Maryland’s Melo Trimble, and Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes.

Also, if anyone out there is looking to perfect their shot mechanics, take notes from Melo Trimble. His jumper is seriously beautiful. pic.twitter.com/qHmEfJuuOI— David MacKay (@DavidMacKayNBA) June 10, 2017

Outside of Ferguson, who played professionally in Australia, each player that worked out on Saturday was a star during their time in college.
