The Portland Trail Blazers practice facility was buzzing on Wednesday during the team’s first round of pre-draft workouts. Coaches, management, and current players looked on to see potential targets show their skills up close.

Forwards John Collins and T.J. Leaf headlined the group, while lesser known talents looked to prove themselves worthy of one of Portland’s three first round selections. Media members were in attendance to give their takeaways and observations from the day’s action.

Sindarius Thornwell, Antonio Blakeney and Paris Bass were also participants in today’s drills, but were less represented in Twitter coverage from media.

Evan Turner, while not in attendance, poked fun at teammates who were in Portland for the workouts:

Collins and Leaf appear to be real contenders for one of the Trail Blazers’ three first round selections, though there are more workouts to come. You make the call: If both players are available at the No. 15 pick, who are you taking?
