Joseph Treutlein: How have you been preparing for the draft so far?
Patrick O'Bryant: Just same thing as everyone else, working out all summer, getting ready.
Joseph Treutlein: Is there any part of your game in particular that youve been working on?
Patrick O'Bryant: Id say a lot of footwork stuff and post moves, that kind of thing.
Joseph Treutlein: Is there any skill you can offer that we perhaps havent seen in college?
Patrick O'Bryant: I dont think so.
Joseph Treutlein: How many teams have you worked out for?
Patrick O'Bryant: I have worked out for four. Well, actually all of them technically.
Joseph Treutlein: For the rest of your workouts, what range of picks are you planning to work out in?
Patrick O'Bryant: Lottery, pretty much.
Joseph Treutlein: So you think youre a lottery pick?
Patrick O'Bryant: Yeah.
Joseph Treutlein: If Im a general manager, why should I pick you?
Patrick O'Bryant: Because Im long, athletic, work hard, good shot-blocker, good rebounder.
Joseph Treutlein: You said that you work hard. Some people have questioned your drive or your motor. How would you respond to that?
Patrick O'Bryant: I mean, why would I be here if I didnt want to work at it? This is the best league in the world, why would I come here if I didnt want to work at it?
Joseph Treutlein: Of the players youve worked out against, who has impressed you the most?
Patrick O'Bryant: I would say probably Shelden [Williams]. Hes just a big strong guy and really good.
Joseph Treutlein: What was your best workout for a team? Is there any team you think you particularly impressed?
Patrick O'Bryant: I would say New Orleans. They just seemed to have the best feedback.
Joseph Treutlein: Is there any team in the NBA that you think your style of play fits in with well?
Patrick OBryant: Not really any in particular, no.
Joseph Treutlein: You dont think your game is more suited to a half-court or full-court type game for example?
Patrick OBryant: I think I could play in either one, really. I could do well either way.
