HoopsHype Robbie Hummel rumors

June 9, 2012 Updates

If drafted, Hummel likely will be a late second-round selection. He has a workout coming up with the Bulls as well as ones with the Cavaliers, Jazz and Pacers. There are about a dozen workouts planned in total before draft night. "A lot of teams are interested," Hummel said. "It helps that doubt has been eliminated with my knees. As long as I keep that going in the right direction, I'm confident I'll be taken." Chicago Tribune

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.
