10. Portland: Kelly Olynyk, C, Gonzaga

Quietly the Blazers are building a solid young team up in Portland with LaMarcus Aldridge as the elder statesman. Portland reportedly loved McCollum's workout when he was in town and would take him if available, but he should be off the board at No. 10. Instead, look for the Blazers to add depth to their front line. Olynyk, North Carolina's Cody Zeller or possibly Pitt's Steven Adams could be the pick. Olynyk would be a nice fit based on his ability to play interchangeably between low and high posts, which would complement both Aldridge and Meyers Leonard. There are concerns about his athleticism, but Olynyk has a nice skill set that fits well in Portland.
