Blazers trying to move up to take Alexander Johnson

Blazers trying to move up to take Alexander Johnson

Postby JSM on Sun Jun 18, 2006 5:54 pm

Draft Express: Rumors over the past few days have linked Portland with a trade for one of New Jersey’s first round picks, either #22 or #23. The Trailblazers are attempting to package the #30 and #31 picks to move up. A player they are reportedly interested in is Florida State power forward Alexander Johnson, who Head Coach Nate McMillan and other members of the Portland front office watched workout last week at the Orlando pre-draft Camp. Johnson fits McMillan’s personality to a T, and would likely not get past Memphis at 24 if he is not picked earlier.

I want this kid! We have Mihm with two teams (Hornets and Bulls) interested in him. Oh, and the Hornets and Bulls both have two first rounders.

Yeah, I think he would fit in well with our current PF's. I'd like him if we pick at #16.

So would I. If we did just that one trade (Mihm + 26 for Duhon + 16) and drafted Johnson, I'd consider the offseason to be a success.

Is Alexander Johnson that good. I hear so much about him. Does he have a 15 foot jump shot and is he as athletic as everyone says he is?

Well, from the clips I watched, he certainly does have that 15' jumper, however, I didn't see many aggresive moves to the whole and no dunks whatsoever. I know dunks aren't everything, but, it does show aggressiveness. I don't want to draft him if he is another soft Cookie.

Has anyone seen more out of him than what yahoo is showing the clips, such as some defense and/or moves to the whole that he finishes strong?

Well, even if he's as agressive as Cookie, he's still twice the athlete as Cookie.
