Husky Men's Basketball

Big day for Roy

Brandon Roy said in this year’s UW media guide that the most famous person he had ever met was Jesse Jackson.
That could be about to change as Roy is expected to work out tomorrow (Thursday, June 22) for the Charlotte Bobcats, who hold the third pick in next Wednesday’s NBA Draft.
And I would imagine that the man who is their new part-owner – Michael Jordan – will be there. I guess you could debate who is the more famous of the two – Jackson or Jordan – but I’d side with Jordan these days.
Here’s a story from the Charlotte paper reporting on Roy’s likely visit. That story also says that Roy could be Charlotte’s choice since LaMarcus Aldridge and Tyrus Thomas figure to be gone when the Bobcats pick.
That goes against much of what is churning lately in the rumor mill, including last night’s report by ESPN’s Ric Bucher that Toronto may be considering Roy with the top pick. That’s interesting since Roy said last week he wasn’t expected to work out for Toronto since the Raptors indicated they wanted a bigger player.
This report from Hoops World, via CNNSI, is the latest to report that maybe the Lakers want to move up to take Roy.
It’s interesting to me that these rumors have much of their base in Roy’s workout with the Lakers last month, which isn’t exactly new news. It was reported in the Seattle media, including here, weeks ago. When I talked with Brandon, I got the impression the workout was done in part simply because he was already in LA – he spent most of May working out there with other clients of Arn Tellem.
Still, the Lakers obviously got a good look at Roy that day and maybe saw enough to want to move up.
MORE ON HAWES
Here’s an interesting piece from Draftexpress.com which speculates on which high schoolers might have been taken in this year’s draft had the rules not changed a year ago, with Spencer Hawes mentioned.
