Mark Lyons RumorsAll NBA Players
The Clippers completed their second pre-draft workout Wednesday morning at the team’s Playa Vista Training Center. A week after taking a look at potential wing players, Vice President of Basketball Operations Gary Sacks, Director of Player Personnel Gerald Madkins and several other members of the Clippers’ front office and scouting department observed six point guards in preparation for the 2013 NBA Draft where they own the No. 25 overall selection. The group included Pierre Jackson, a senior from Baylor, South Dakota State’s Nate Wolters, Texas sophomore Myck Kabongo and seniors Isaiah Canaan (Murray State), Mark Lyons (Arizona) and Erick Green (Virginia Tech), who led the nation in scoring last season.
Mark Lyons isn’t returning to Xavier for his senior season. According to multiple sources, Musketeers coach Chris Mack and Lyons met late last week and it was determined that it would be best for Lyons’ career at Xavier to come to a conclusion. Lyons averaged 15.1 points — second on the team — last season. Mack will also lose leading scorer Tu Holloway and fellow senior Kenny Frease to graduation.
