Blazers ink 1st-round picks, re-sign Hickson

07/13/12 3:58 PM

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - The Portland Trail Blazers signed draft picks Damian Lillard and Meyers Leonard on Friday and re-signed forward J.J. Hickson.

Lillard was selected with the sixth overall pick of the NBA Draft, while Leonard was the 11th player taken in the first round.

A four-year guard from Weber State, Lillard averaged 18.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists during his collegiate career.

The 7-foot-1 Leonard averaged 13.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.88 blocks as a sophomore at Illinois last season.

The Blazers signed Hickson on March 31 after he was waived by Sacramento.

He averaged 15.1 points in 19 games for Portland, including 10 starts, and general manager Neil Olshey said Hickson gives the team depth on the front line.
