The 2018 NBA Draft combine is in full swing in Chicago. The Portland Trail Blazers hold the 24th pick in the draft, making them prime attendees for an event in which lower-first-round-projected players try to prove themselves. Among the media attendees is Jason Quick of NBCSports Northwest, who shares the early word on possible draft workouts.

Duke wingman Gary Trent Jr. appears to be on the invite list.

Steve Dewald profiled Trent earlier this week and says, “He is very much a player that could fit into a “win now” model for the Blazers.”

Oregon’s Troy Brown might be scheduled for a Blazers workout as well.

Brian Freeman gave the lowdown on Brown last week, saying, “Defensive flexibility would provide a nice addition in Portland, as would his ability to give meaningful minutes at small forward.”
