Jerryd Bayless: Teams that Skipped Me Were Crazy


Jerryd Bayless is headed to an up-and-coming Portland team, but a question seemingly will continue to dog him after he slipped to No. 11 in the NBA draft:

Is the former Arizona star a shooting or a point guard?

"I think they are crazy," Bayless said when asked what he would say to people who don’t think he can play both guard spots. "That’s what I think."

The question may have contributed to Bayless falling out of the top 10 in New York City and being picked by the Indiana Pacers, who agreed to deal him to Portland.
