2012 NBA Draft: Damian Lillard Impresses During 'Grueling' Workouts

Weber State point guard Damian Lillard is probably the best point guard in this year's draft class, but he continues to improve his stock through impressive workouts in front of NBA executives. ESPN's Chad Ford gushed about the 21-year-old during his workout on Saturday afternoon in Oakland.

Last season, Lillard averaged 24.5 PPG on 47 percent shooting, 5.0 RPG and 4.0 APG while leading Weber State to a 25-7 overall record. Earlier in the year, he wasn't considered an obvious lottery pick, but workouts like the one he had on Saturday continue to move him up draft boards.

Named the Big Sky Conference Player of the Year in 2010 and 2012, now he's simply showing that he's capable of dominating in a similar manner against improved competition.
