NBA draft: Blazers take Lillard with No. 6 pick

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Trail Blazers selected point guard Damian Lillard out of Weber State with the sixth overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night.
Lillard, the Big Sky Conference player of the year last season, averaged 24.5 points, five rebounds and four assists as a junior with the Wildcats before declaring early for the draft.
The 6-foot-3 guard had a solo workout with the Blazers earlier this month and reportedly dined with Portland owner Paul Allen afterward.
The Blazers got the sixth pick from the Nets in a trade at the deadline this season for forward Gerald Wallace.
Portland also has the No. 11 pick in the first round. It is the first time the team has had two lottery picks.
