A.J. Slaughter update

15 06 2010

Former Western Kentucky standout A.J. Slaughter has been a relatively busy man over the past month or so and things have seemingly picked up even more over the past week.

I spoke with Slaughter – who is currently in Portland preparing for a workout with the Trailblazers – this morning about the process he’s been going through leading up to the June 24 NBA Draft.

And apparently, so far, so good for Slaughter.

“I’ve just been on the road going team to team, city to city,” Slaughter said. “It’s been just a lot of workouts and getting to know people.

“It’s been a busy schedule, there’s been a lot of teams interested. It’s always a good thing when you’re busy because I know there’s a lot of guys sitting at home wishing they were doing the same thing. So it’s not bad.”

Slaughter said he’s currently in the middle of a two-week workout trip that started with the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs before wrapping up with Portland, the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics.

Working out as a point guard for all teams, Slaughter said he’s received some positive feedback from several squads about the possibility of being drafted in the second round during next week’s draft. If that’s not the case, Slaughter said he and his agent are confident that he’ll find his way onto an NBA Summer League team somewhere and see how things pan out.
