With the 22nd pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, the Portland Trail Blazers took 6’6″ shooting guard Elliot Williams from the University of Memphis. Here is Williams’ DraftExpress.com profile. You can follow him on Twitter @ewill901.
From DraftExpress on Twitter:
Elliot Williams to Portland. Had heard they liked him quite a bit. Great pick for them. Blazers are on fire as usual in the draft.
And Chad Ford, who says Kevin Pritchard played some mind games:
The Blazers were the source of the misinformation that was out there about Williams. KP talked me out of putting him at 22 in my mock.
More from Ford:
NBA exec just texted me: “Pritchard just got 2 top 10 guys in the draft and then got fired!”
