On the other end of the spectrum from Gilgeous-Alexander’s pre-draft approach is the way that Kentucky teammate Kevin Knox went about his workouts in the past month. Knox worked out for every team from Orlando at No. 6 through the Clippers at No. 13, and he should land in that range.
Not only that, but he eschewed the standard one-on-zero workouts Cheap Essendon Jerseys that so many top prospects insist upon, and mixed it up with other potential lottery picks. He enjoyed the process so much that he snuck in one last workout on Tuesday for the Sixers before going to New York for the draft.
After the Kings at No. 2, this may prove to be the most difficult spot to project in the top five. The Grizzlies have been unable to convince many of the draft’s top prospects to come in for a workout. Wendell Carter Jr. has been to Memphis, and the team has seen Michael Porter Jr. in Chicago. Jackson, meanwhile, has refused to work out or turn over medicals, according to reports.
Still, the 6-11 center is one of the top big man prospects in the draft. His ability to knock down 3-pointers and defend the perimeter would allow him to play some minutes alongside Marc Gasol as he grows into his eventual replacement. Memphis can just take the best player and figure out the rest later.
At the moment, the Sixers are expecting 11 players to return to the team next season, with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid at the core.
Philadelphia currently has the most picks in this year’s draft with six: Nos. 10, 26, 38, 39, 56 and 60 overall. If the team can trade up, it will be the fifth year in a row it will have a top-five pick.
