Portland drafts KU's Jeff Withey with 39th overall pick

Before Thursday night’s NBA Draft, former Kansas center Jeff Withey made it pretty clear. He had no idea where he was heading, and that was just fine. He had worked out for more than 15 teams, and Withey hoped that some team in the latter half of the first round would call his name. Turns out, Withey’s opportunity will come with the Portland Trailblazers, who selected him with the 39th overall pick in the second round.
