Dion Waiters Got A Promise At The NBA Draft Combine, According To Reports

Dion Waiters didn't receive the most buzz during the most recent college basketball season while playing for the Syracuse Orange. At least one NBA team was enamored with him enough at this week's NBA Draft Combine, however, that it has apparently promised to pick him in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Waiters was in attendance for the beginning of the combine and even interviewed with several teams on the first night of the event before things got weird. The guard left Chicago on Thursday with many in attendance speculating he's received a promise from a lottery team that they'll select him.

While there are plenty of teams that have been rumored to be the culprit, with the Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors and Phoenix Suns among them, the only response the Internet has seen thus far comes from the Raptors.

For what it's worth, Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears was still reporting as of Friday morning that Waiters' promise is indeed from Colangelo up in Toronto.

Risky business, yeah?
