TUALATIN, Ore. — If you're focused on what might happen with the No. 3 overall pick in next month's draft, the Trail Blazers' predraft workouts are slowly becoming more interesting.
The workouts to this point have consisted mainly of projected late first and second-round picks. Until Tuesday. The latest session saw both of Overtime Elite's twin brothers, Amen and Ausar Thompson, go through separate solo workouts in front of an audience that included Joe Cronin's entire front-office staff, Vulcan vice chair Bert Kolde, Blazers president of business operations Dewayne Hankins and, most notably, Damian Lillard.
"You definitely feel like you have to impress him," Amen said of Lillard's presence at the workout. "He's basically a part of the front office."
