A year ago, Michigan forward Mitch McGary might have been in better position to enter the NBA. Following the Wolverine’s impressive run to the championship game in the NCAA tournament, McGary’s stock was at a high — in a weak class, some saw him as a potential lottery pick. Now, he will not be a lottery pick. But a source told Sporting News that he is a near-certainty to be a first-round pick, and that he, “has been all but assured,” that a team in the 20s will grab him if he is there, barrring a trade or an unlikely slip by a high-ranking propsect. It has been rumored that the team is either Oklahoma City, which has picks Nos. 21 and 29, or Charlotte, which holds No. 24. Sporting News

Mitch McGary is still working his way into full health, and has yet to hit the floor to showcase his skills for NBA teams. That wait could end next week, though. McGary's agent Mark Bartelstein told MLive on Wednesday that, at the moment, the plan is to have McGary begin working out for select NBA teams at some point next week -- and by this weekend, the hope is to have a small number of dates set and ready to go. "Everything's good, we're hopefully going to start working out toward the middle or end of next week, we're trying to schedule some stuff" Bartelstein said. "Everything's been good, he's progressing, that's probably the plan right now. Booth Newspapers
