Olynyk headlined a workout that featured 12 players, including at least three post players who are projected to be drafted in the first round. The fact that the Jazz already have two promising young big men, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors, under contract, did not keep them from bringing in some top prospects. In addition to Olynyk, the Jazz worked out 7-foot-1 French center Rudy Gobert and Louisville center Gorgui Dieng, who are both projected to go in the middle of the first round. Salt Lake Tribune

Dallas is in the rare position of having a lottery pick, and while they’re open to trading the pick, they’d also be open to keeping it and using it on a high-ceiling project like Gobert. That probably explains the Kings’ interest. Sacramento has been rumored to be shopping DeMarcus Cousins— considering they just hired their coach and have no GM, it’s safe to say those rumors have been overblown—but even if they keep him, they’re likely to make some sort of deal to change an obviously flawed roster. The Kings have Tyreke Evans and James Johnson in restricted free agency, and have tradable pieces in guys like Marcus Thornton and Jason Thompson. Sporting News

Now, just six years later, the lottery lock is training in Dallas, TX, in hopes of being one of the best players in what many consider a weak Draft. “My goal is to be a top seven or eight draft pick. Although I won’t be upset if I don’t go top seven,” Gobert said. “I’ll be very upbeat just to be drafted and I’ll be ready to go out there and ready to play this summer. Whichever team drafts me, I’m just going to work hard to get better.” SLAM
