Saginaw's Draymond Green expects to be late 1st-round pick

Posted: Updated:

Draymond Green expects to be selected between the 20th and 30th pick in the NBA draft.

Utah Jazz executive Walt Perrin says the ex-Michigan State star has realistic expectations.

Green was the lone senior on The Associated Press' All-America team last season.

He might be overlooked by teams earlier in the first round because some scouts don't think he's tall enough to play power forward or quick enough to be a small forward.

The 6-foot-7 Green says he wouldn't come up short if teams could measure his heart and work ethic.

Green graduated last week and plans to stay on campus to prepare for the draft next month.

He has a workout scheduled with the Boston Celtics, one of about a dozen teams that have expressed an interest in the versatile player.
