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.

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

Zach LaVine doesn't want to leave Chicago?

The Bulls’ offseason overhaul couldn’t have come at a better time, as Zach LaVine is on the final year of his contract with an extension yet to be signed. But if it were up to LaVine himself, he’s reportedly all-in on staying in the Windy City. That’s according to ESPN Chicago radio analyst David Kaplan, who’s heard from sources that the All-Star doesn’t want to go anywhere. Via ESPN 1000 FM: “He has told people that I know: ‘Hey man, if they want me here, I’m not going anywhere. I’m building this thing. I’m the first guy in the door. I wanna be part of this.’”
This rumor is part of a storyline: 55 more rumors
Is KAT’s trade value at all impacted by missing the playoffs yet again? If a Simmons deal can’t get done, would you think about trading him now, considering the likelihood that you may need to next offseason? — @JWeAnd1 Definitely no interest in trading him now. Towns will have plenty of value for the foreseeable future, barring a big injury. This is a big season. I think there will be more clarity, positive or negative, when 2021-22 concludes. Then the Wolves can make a real decision on how best to move forward. But Towns remains a focal point right now. That’s not changing anytime soon.
Morey will be in a similar position to Thibs in that rival executives will try to back him into a corner and wait for things to get really uncomfortable with Simmons, thereby driving down the asking price. But Morey is much more experienced in front office work than was Thibodeau, a coach to his core who had not yet started his third season as the lead decision-maker. Those around the league believe that if there is any executive able to stomach the circus that is sure to descend upon Philly, to block out the noise that comes with this kind of drama, it’s Morey.
Ben Simmons trade buzz has been one of the offseason’s hottest storylines, but president of basketball operations Daryl Morey and the 76ers have yet to pull the trigger in a deal involving the 25-year-old three-time All-Star. Will the Aussie wear the 76ers’ red, white and blue to start the season? By a wide margin, our panel’s vote projects Simmons to remain in Philly — at least until the season tips off on Oct. 19. 1. Philadelphia 76ers: 45%
Storyline: Ben Simmons Trade?
Despite the on-paper match, ESPN’s NBA insider Zach Lowe took to his podcast to say there’s a slim chance of that actually happening due to the Clippers’ lack of interest in Russell Westbrook when he was available: “The Clippers were never interested in Russell Westbrook. They were a rumored Russell Westbrook trade in a few places whenever that happened. They were never interested. That was never a real thing. I think they value their optionality too much.” Lowe ultimately concluded, “I just don’t see it,” because, like Westbrook, Wall is over 30 and has a massive contract — $44 million due this season and a player option the following season for over $47 million.
The Philadelphia 76ers earn the top spot for Team Turmoil, as our experts predict which teams will be surrounded by the most drama this season. While the Ben Simmons saga lingers in Philly, the Lakers could share in the dramatics, as head coach Frank Vogel will have to incorporate former MVP Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony along with five former Laker alums. 1. Philadelphia 76ers: 61 points (55.0% first-place votes)
