HoopsHype Robbie Hummel rumors
There were crazy questions. Robbie Hummel was asked by one team who, in his opinion, was the worst player at the Combine. Drummond was asked to diagram a UConn play. John Henson was posed the question what he thought he'd average in 11 minutes on this year's team. I won't give you Hummel's answer, but Drummond succeeded and Henson's response was four points and three rebounds. CBSSports.com

Now he has to prove to every team in the NBA that he's healthy again. "I've come a long way since then," Hummel said of a senior season in which he averaged 16.4 points and 7.2 rebounds. "I was getting better towards the end of the season, but it wasn't close to [100 percent]," he said. "Heck, I only had one dunk this year. I'm a 6-8 forward and I had one dunk. Probably not a good thing. But it's coming back." Minneapolis Star-Tribune
Hummel has to prove that. At this point it appears his best chance will be as an undrafted free agent;. But, perhaps, strong workouts could change that. "All workouts, whether they're individual or in a group setting like this, will be important to him," Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn said. "It will be an opportunity to show what he can do. I thought he played very well." Frankly, there were times when Hummel questioned whether he'd ever get back in the NBA conversation.

One thing is for sure. If it happens, if he makes an NBA roster, what Hummel has been through will make it that much sweeter. "It would be more rewarding," he said. "It's something I've wanted since I was three or four years old. But, with the knee injuries, having to sit out, the questions I have to answer here? It would be definitely satisfying."

Hummel is ready to move forward after hiring Mark Bartelstein as his agent. Former Purdue center JaJuan Johnson, now a rookie with the Boston Celtics, believes Hummel can make it in the league. Journal Gazette
