Syracuse point guard Michael Carter-Williams is expected to be one of the players that will participate in the New Orleans Pelicans' pre-draft workout Friday morning at the Alario Center. Carter-Williams tweeted Thursday afternoon that he was on his way to New Orleans. Most of the mock drafts have Carter-Williams, 6-feet-6, 185 pounds, going as a lottery pick and he is expected to be available when the Pelicans select at No. 6 overall in the June 27th NBA draft.

The Suns turn the draft intrigue a different direction today by bringing in the top four collegiate point guard prospects for a workout at US Airways Center. The Suns’ workout will feature the point guard quartet of Michigan’s Trey Burke, Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum (a combo guard), Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams and Miami’s Shane Larkin. Suns general manager Ryan McDonough is taking a best-player-available approach to the draft and a 25-win team needs that, even if their best performer (Goran Dragic) and last year’s lottery pick (Kendall Marshall) are already point guards on the roster.

The Pelicans will take a long, hard look at both Burke and Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams. But I'm not sure they'll bite. This team drafted Austin Rivers last year to be its point guard of the future and sources say that the team hasn't given up on Rivers, despite a miserable rookie season. With Greivis Vasquez also in the backcourt, point guard isn't a huge need if they're happy with Vasquez and Rivers. That makes Len an attractive option here. ESPN.com

Given some time to mull the possibility of playing for his hometown C’s, Carter-Williams sang a different tune on Rohrbach’s podcast this week. “If I was drafted by the Celtics, I’d be just as happy as I would being drafted by anyone else,” said the 21-year-old. “It’s a great place. It’s been home to me. It would be a blessing to play there. I’d be real excited. I guess the question caught me off guard. That’s how I really feel. I’d be happy to play for them as well as any other team.” WEEI.com
