MARTY BLAKE'S PRE-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"He needs to add weight. He can play the four or go outside and shoot well. Houston was willing to give up three picks for someone (Griffin) who can help them right away. He can score points in the NBA. Playing for Rudy Tomjanovich is a great opportunity for him, just a great environment for him to go to."
