Portland’s Elleby happy to land on Brandon Roy’s former team

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — CJ Elleby was the 46th pick in the NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. He became the first Washington State player drafted since Klay Thompson in 2011. Elleby averaged 18.4 points and 7.8 rebounds as a sophomore for the Cougars last season. He also led the Pac-12 with 1.8 steals per game. He says he grew up watching the Blazers, and always admired former guard Brandon Roy.
