With the 34th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, the Blazers have selected Armon Johnson, their second pick of the night out of Nevada. Here is his DraftExpress.com profile:
Looking forward, Johnson clearly has excellent physical attributes to go along with very good skills for the point guard position, but he has quite a few bad habits with his game and has a lot of things he will need to work on to be an effective pro player. The encouraging thing is he shows flashes of brilliance in pretty much all areas of the game at times, and his shooting problems appear to be fixable if he puts in the work, but it will also require a mentality change in better understanding the difference between good and bad shots. It’s hard to say anything definitive about Johnson’s pro prospects at this point, as he could be all over the map depending on how he improves certain areas of his game, but it appears pretty clear that he needs another year in school to continue his development before coming out.
Well, that pretty much means Patty Mills won’t be coming back. That’s three wing players in one night for Portland. Still feels like they are working on a future deal.
