    Paul George, who finished his Bulldog career as one of the program's best free throw shooters and a dynamic scorer with 987 points throughout his freshman and sophomore seasons, has been working out with various NBA teams, including a visit today with the Milwaukee Bucks.

    He talked with the Bucks about his expectations for the 2010 NBA Draft, the process of working out for different teams, the type of player he will be and more...

    On how he would compare his workout with the Bucks to the one he had with the Bulls...

    "This one was a lot tougher. It was a lot more transition type of stuff, but it was pretty similar as far as competition. We competed pretty hard and had some pretty decent players at both ends so it was kind of the same in a way.


    On what he would bring to the Bucks...

    "Just another guard that can kind of handle some pressure and take it off of Brandon Jennings a little bit in the backcourt. Just be another shooter and get out and defend. I think I can bring a lot to the Bucks."



    On what the draft process has been like for him...

    "It was definitely exciting. Not a lot of guys can say that they are doing this so I take every day as a challenge and when you get out of bed, this is what you really want to do. You get a chance to compete with top players around the world so it's definitely fun."

     

    On having Craig Brackins (Iowa State) at the same workout as him...

    "Craig is like a big brother. We kind of grew up in the same area, know each other pretty well, so it would be another addition of me being comfortable. I know Brandon Jennings a little bit."

     

    On what he likes about Brandon Jennings...

    "He's an amazing point guard. He's quick, sort of like Nate Archibald, and he's flashy. He brings another dimension to the point guard position."

     

    On what type of NBA player he would compare himself to...

    "Somebody like a Josh Howard, Rudy Gay, Joe Johnson type of player; pretty big shooting guards. I want to transition later in my career to someone like a Tracy McGrady."
