There was more action at the Portland Trail Blazers practice facility in Tualatin on Thursday, as six more players participated in pre-draft workouts.
A seventh player, Indiana forward OG Anunoby, was in attendance but did not participate in workouts since he is recovering from an ACL tear.
Here is what we saw on Twitter from local media:
Harry Giles, 6’11” F/C, Duke
Justin Patton, 7’0” C, Creighton

Mitchell is moving up on many analyst’s draft boards after a stellar workout in Chicago. Expecting him to fall to Portland on draft day may be a tough ask.
Giles, 19, and Patton, 20, were the main attractions on Thursday. Both are young centers with loads of potential upside who should be available when the Blazers make their first selection—almost certainly at 15, but quite possibly lower. Giles’ knee problems, though, could give some teams second thoughts.
Are any of these players on your Blazer draft board?
