Roy high on new guys

While talking with Brandon Roy for the story that appeared in Saturday’s paper previewing the NBA Draft, I also asked his thoughts on what he sees from the Huskies — he spent several days last week working out with the team while in Seattle.
Roy was particularly impressed with Quincy Pondexter.
“He’s definitely going to be a pro in a couple of years,” Roy said. “He’s 6-6, 6-7, he can handle the ball and he’s more athletic than I thought he was. He reminds me of Martell Webster a little bit. He doesn’t shoot it as well but he may slash just as good as him. He’s going to be a special player.”
Roy also liked what he saw of Adrian Oliver, saying that he thought Oliver was a bit bigger than he thought he might be — Oliver is listed at 6-3, 185. “He’s going to be pretty big for a point guard,” Roy said, adding that he thinks if the Huskies can turn him into a combo guard, able to play both spots, “that will be great.”
Playing both spots has been the stated plan for Oliver from day one so I think that will happen.
“Everybody’s in there every day working so hard,” Roy said. “You can tell Washington is a power house now.”
