Chris Kirschner: Hawks will work out the following play…

More on Draft Workouts

Justin Felder: NBA league source tells @FOX5Sports former Georgia State star D'Marcus Simonds will work out with #Hawks on Friday.
Wednesday was his sixth NBA workout, his third this spring (he previously auditioned for the Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics). Chris Clemons has workouts scheduled with the Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves as he awaits whether that combine invitation will come.
AJ Lawson respectfully declined an invitation to the NBA’s G-League Elite Camp and will focus on individual workouts for NBA teams, a USC spokesperson confirmed. That means that Lawson had a chance to advance to the NBA Combine and didn’t take it.
The Gamecocks’ Chris Silva was also invited to the G-League camp. He worked out for the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.
Rod Boone: #Hornets first predraft workout list, scheduled for tomorrow: Nicolas Claxton, F, 6-1, Georgia Chris Clemons, G, 5-9, Campbell Hassani Gravett, G, 6-2, South Carolina Dewan Hernandez, F, 6-11, Miami (FL) Ronshad Shabazz, G, 6-5, App. State LaGerald Vick, G, 6-5, Kansas
Chris Kirschner: The Hawks are bringing in the following for pre-draft workouts on Wednesday: G Ky Bowman (Boston College) G Armoni Brooks (Houston) C Steven Enoch (Louisville) F Caleb Martin (Nevada) G Garrison Mathews (Lipscomb)
Battle did receive an invitation to the G-League Elite Camp, which will be held in Chicago from May 12-14. The G-League camp will include approximately 40 players. Battle’s father, Gary, said he expected that Battle would schedule workouts with 10 to 15 different NBA teams prior to the draft.
Bill Oram: One Lakers thing: Jalen Brunson had an individual workout with the Lakers earlier this month. It was not among the workouts the team announced. This doesn't mean they're going to draft him. But it's interesting.
Ohm Youngmisuk: The Lakers brought Arizona's Allonzo Trier in for a second workout this week, according to league sources. The Lakers are looking to improve their shooting and Trier shot better in the second workout than his first according to sources. The 6-5 guard's stock could be rising.
On Tuesday, ESPN draft analyst Jonathan Givony reported Young worked out privately for the Cavs over the weekend. The team would not confirm the workout, which, assuming the workout did in fact take place is a break from how the team has operated with its pre-draft workouts so far (the Cavs have typically confirmed them afterwards).
Ian Begley: Aaron Holiday, Ray Spalding and Donte Ingram were among the players who worked out for the Knicks on Tuesday, per sources. Holiday, out of UCLA, is one of the top point guards in the draft. Ingram, from Loyola, has impressed teams in workouts and is seen by some of those teams as a potential second-round pick. Spalding, a 6-10 big, averaged 12.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game last season at Louisville. The Knicks have the 9th and 36th picks in Thursday's draft.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Texas A & M's Robert Williams had a second visit with the Clippers on Tuesday, league sources tell ESPN. This one included a conversation with owner Steve Ballmer. Clippers have done significant study of Williams for its picks at 12 and 13.
Darren Wolfson: Also in yesterday to workout for the #Twolves, I hear: two Cincinnati Bearcats in Kyle Washington and Gary Clark. This was Clark's 2nd workout here. Washington played in high school at Benilde St. Margaret's in St. Louis Park. pic.twitter.com/hInA7qyhYN
Trae Young reportedly conducted a “secret workout” with the Cleveland Cavaliers on June 16, per ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. The Cavs reportedly view Michael Porter Jr. as their top choice; however, point guard is a clear need on the roster should Porter not be available. Thirty-two-year-old George Hill is the only point guard currently under contract for the 2018-19 season.
Nets Daily: The Nets have released and tweeted five videos of their Draft prospects. Not one prospect’s face was shown. Not one. Nets are keeping their Draft plans, their strategy even the players they’re working out VERY closely held. Expect the unexpected.
Jason Quick: Simons had a workout with Memphis, but cancelled to accept Blazers' invitation. "I feel like they wanted me more,'' Simons said of Portland.
Jason Quick: Final draft workout for Blazers today features two marquee names: Bosnian wing Dzanan Musa and teenager Anfernee Simons, who is in Portland for his second workout with Blazers. Simons is the only prospect brought in for two looks.
Monte Poole: Draft hopefuls working out for Warriors on Tuesday SG Trevon Bluiett (Xavier) SF Gary Clark (Cincinnati) PF Bonzie Colson (Notre Dame) PF MiKyle McIntosh (Oregon) SG Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (Kansas) SG Desi Rodriguez (Seton Hall)
Kevin Knox, Zhaire Smith back tomorrow for another workout with Sixers - Knox’s will be solo session in the afternoon. Smith with: B.J. Johnson (La Salle) De’Anthony Melton (USC) Tyler Nelson (Fairfield) Malik Newman (Kansas) Landry Shamet (Wichita St) pic.twitter.com/dTcdEnlXiv
Scott Agness: #Pacers hosting their sixth (and likely final) pre-draft workout on Tuesday: Rawle Alkins Marcus Derrickson Arnoldas Kulboka (Lithuania) Kelan Martin Elie Okobo (France) Theo Pinson Full list of prospects they’ve brought in: vigilantsports.com/pacers-2018-pr…
John Meyer: Local prospect Gary Trent Jr. back in town for a workout at Target Center today — used see him at games all the time with Tre Jones. Latest ESPN mock has him going 28th to Golden State. He has elite shooting potential. pic.twitter.com/k1CQVZQZVy
Harrison Wind: Mitchell Robinson’s pre-draft workout with the Nuggets was cancelled but the 7-footer is in Denver today. I’m guessing he still met with the team's front office.
Ian Begley: The Knicks have a workout scheduled on Tuesday with Loyola's Donte Ingram, league sources say. Ingram's workout is believed to be in a group setting and will likely be his final workout before the draft: espn.com/espn/now?nowId…

Gina Mizell: The #Nuggets’ pre-draft workout with Mitchell Robinson has been canceled. He’s one of the draft’s biggest mystery prospects because he did not play college ball/overseas last season and withdrew from NBA combine last month.
Darren Wolfson: Rest of yesterday's #Twolves draft workout that I haven't previously mentioned: Duncan Robinson (Michigan) and Andrew Rowsey (Marquette). Yesterday was also Troy Brown Jr. (Oregon) workout day here. He's a 1st round pick. #AllEyesNorth
Kyle Goon: Jacob Evans from Cincinnati talks about his versatility he’s trying to showcase to NBA teams. While he’s often described as an NBA-ready player, he thinks he has plenty of upside. pic.twitter.com/HXsnO02aAp

Kyle Goon: Dzanan Musa was one of the participants in today’s workouts. He talks about the process and how he appreciates the Jazz’s international friendly approach and playing style. pic.twitter.com/VWadLZwPPr
Darren Wolfson: I hear that another solid draft wing was in today for a #Twolves workout in Tulane's Melvin Frazier. He measures 6-foot-6, with a 7-foot-1 wingspan and 8-foot-9 standing reach. He can defend, has vision, and made shots last year. He probably has flown under the radar too much.
Darren Wolfson: Lithuania's Arnoldas Kulboka, 20, also worked out for the #Twolves today, I hear. He was named best young player in the league he played in overseas last season. He has also worked out for the Lakers and Nuggets. #AllEyesNorth
Ryan McDonald: Another LOADED workout for the Jazz tomorrow (maybe their last one?). Evans, Melton and Musa are in play at 21

Peter Edmiston: Interesting to hear @Adrian Wojnarowski talking in his latest pod about the Grizzlies'struggles to get players in - and also to get some medical information from certain players. Only Wendell Carter among the top prospects has been to Memphis. Pretty mediocre (to be kind) set of workouts...
Tony Jones: Former USC star De'Anthony Melton will work out for the Utah Jazz Sunday morning, League Sources tell The Salt Lake Tribune
Darren Wolfson: Update: While Allen had a nice meal with Thibs and Layden on Wed. night and good conversation into Thursday, he didn't workout for the #Twolves. He's dealing with a minor injury. It also prevented him from doing on-the-court stuff a few days ago with the Hawks. #AllEyesNorth

Ian Begley: Anfernee Simmons, 19, of IMG Academy is scheduled to work out for the Knicks on Monday, league sources told ESPN. Monday’s workout is believed to be a group workout. Simmons is currently projected as the No. 34 pick in ESPN's mock draft. The Knicks have the 36th pick.
Eddie Sefko: Mavericks are sending a crew to Chicago for Michael Porter Jr.'s second workout. Medical staffs from teams in the lottery are converging for the look-see this afternoon. With Porter's back, trusting the docs and athletic trainers is critical. He's a wild card.
Keith Pompey: New #Sixers assistant coach Monty Williams is at the predraft workout. He arrived in town last night.
Young was scheduled for an individual workout with the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, but canceled that workout earlier in the week, league sources told The Athletic. The move could signal a belief from Young’s camp that he won’t be on the board when Philadelphia picks at No. 10 overall.
Brad Turner: Clippers working out center Robert Williams tomorrow, per source. He’s from Texas A&M
Kevin O'Connor: Anfernee Simons is getting some first round buzz: The Blazers and Lakers are interested in the late first, per sources. Heard Simons also impressed at a workout on Wednesday with the Cavs. Simons is raw but projects as an athletic scoring guard with size:
Tony Jones: Former Cincinnati star Jacob Evans will work out for the Utah Jazz Sunday morning, league sources tell The Salt Lake Tribune
Dan Gelston: 76ers workouts on Friday : F Jordan Barnett (Missouri) G-F Jacob Evans (Cincinnati) F Wenyen Gabriel (Kentucky) G Tra Holder (Arizona State) F Kevin Knox (Kentucky) G E.C. Matthews (Rhode Island)
Harrison Faigen: The Lakers are working out these players tomorrow De'Anthony Melton – USC Justin Tillman – VCU Yante Maten – Georgia Peyton Aldridge – Davidson Kyle Washington – Cincinnati Gabe DeVoe – Clemson
Trae Young was scheduled for an individual workout with the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, but canceled that workout earlier in the week, league sources told The Athletic. The move could signal a belief from Young’s camp that he won’t be on the board when Philadelphia picks at No. 10 overall.
In a workout for the Lakers, he recorded a 34.5” one-step vertical. At the conclusion of Raptors workouts, Toronto puts 2:30 on the clock, instructing players to shoot threes off the catch following full-court sprints and pull-up triples from the wings and the top of the key. After launching, players inch out as many full-court layups for the remainder of the time frame. Dakota Mathias drained 13–of–16 long balls en route to setting the all-time Raptors workout record with 53 points.
Adam Zagoria: Former @KentuckyMBB F @Wenyen Gabriel worked out for Toronto today and has Philly, Detroit and Charlotte coming up, per league source.
Bryan Kalbrosky: Source: Hayden Dalton will have a pre-draft workout with the Warriors. He averaged 17.7 points with 2.6 three-pointers and 7.8 rebounds per game for Wyoming last year. He has also worked out with the Lakers, Kings, Nuggets and the Raptors. #DubNation pic.twitter.com/2FKD4jEuWU
Gerald Bourguet: Today's #Suns draft workouts: Jaylen Adams - St. Bonaventure Trevon Duval - Duke Jordan McLaughlin - USC Jeff Roberson - Vanderbilt Elijah Stewart - USC Yuta Watanabe - George Washington
Young says this was one of his best workouts to date. Believes he would fit "real well" with Bulls.
Young: "They're going to get somebody different." Says there isn't anybody like him in the Draft.
Darren Wolfson: Guard Elie Okobo is in town this weekend to workout for the #Twolves. He’s 20 and has already played three seasons professionally. Has also worked out for the Jazz, Nuggets, Wizards, etc. pic.twitter.com/wkgJN0m00j

More HoopsHype Rumors
September 22, 2021 | 2:15 am EDT Update

Damian Lillard held back from trade demand by loyalty to Portland, past statements?

There are many who believed then and continue to insist now that Damian Lillard was about ready to ask out; a source with knowledge of the situation believes Lillard is held back by both his loyalty to Portland and an unwillingness to go back on things he’s already said about sticking things out. He ultimately decided to give this another go, and Lillard has been provided roster upgrades and had a big voice in the coaching search. He may still ask out down the road, but only time will tell how long this honeymoon lasts.

It is clear Simmons wants out though and when you consider that alongside his poor form in the playoffs, the Sixers have little leverage to work with and the offers have reflected that. “The Sixers are yet to find a deal they are willing to do,” Wojnarowski said. “They want Ben Simmons in camp, they want to see his trade value improve and then find a deal out in the marketplace but right now they are going to do it with him on the sidelines because his intention now is to not play another game for that organisation.

Many in Philadelphia expecting Ben Simmons to show up?

The Sixers are expecting at least some sort of absence to open the preseason, sources say, though most are convinced he will eventually show up, citing a lack of precedent for extended holdouts in the NBA. There has been some public debate over whether the Sixers would fine him for such a move in the midst of trying to work through all this, though it seems pretty black-and-white on Philly’s end.

It almost goes without saying that bridge-building would need to be done between Simmons and Doc Rivers. The head coach tried to walk back the despair he showed after Game 7 during exit interviews the very next day, and his defenses of Simmons far outnumber his one high-profile shoulder shrug. Even still, getting the two to connect during the offseason has been close to impossible, sources say. Ultimately, this is in Simmons’ hands. Rivers would tell you himself that he regrets letting his guard down during Simmons’ lowest moment as a professional. Some missteps are just harder to come back from than others.
