Alexander-Walker recently worked out with the Celtics and, sources said, performed extremely well in front of their brass. He also fits something of a positional need now in the backcourt with the team potentially losing Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier in free agency. More of a combo-guard, secondary creator than a pure point guard, the former Hokie is a very skilled player who can run pick-and-rolls, split double-teams, and get into the paint. He can also knock down shots from distance and create plays for others at some level. The big concern here is overall athleticism in regards to potential future star power. Because of that, he profiles best next to a high-level creator. Still, this would be a good value at No. 20 for anyone.
Chase Hughes: Tremont Waters says he has visits with the Pacers and Spurs lined up. Matur Maker heads to Milwaukee next (where his brother Thon played).

Michigan State guard Matt McQuaid was another workout participant on Tuesday. He’s not projected to be drafted, but like his time with the Spartans, McQuaid is looking to eke out a niche for himself in the NBA — possibly as an undrafted free agent. “Just keeping the underdog mentality and the edge at MSU that you play with and learn when you’re there,” McQuaid said. “Just being tough and doing the little things and paying attention to detail and do all the things that help you stand out.”
We reported last week that Kentucky power forward P.J. Washington will work out for the Heat in June, according to a source. And ESPN draft analyst Jonathan Givony reported Tuesday that Washington’s workout for the Heat will be Sunday and the first of six private workouts for one of three Kentucky players expected to go in the first round of the June 20 draft. Washington is among several players expected to receive strong consideration for the Heat’s pick at No. 13.

“I’m a two-way player, an elite two-way player,” Culver said. “I can score and I can play defense. I feel like people see that a lot in me.” The 20-year-old worked out in an individual setting for the Lakers’ brass, including general manager Rob Pelinka and head coach Frank Vogel. Also present in the gym: superstar LeBron James. “I know LeBron plays here, but I didn’t expect him to be here,” Culver said. “You’re kinda shocked at first, like that’s LeBron James.”

WNBA star Brittney Griner, detained in Russia since February, sent a letter to the U.S. president asking him to do everything possible to bring her back to America. Griner, jailed on drug-dealing charges, pleaded for her freedom and said she is terrified she will not be able to leave Russia. “…as I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever”
“On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran,’ she continued. ‘It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year” ‘I realize you are dealing with so much, but please don’t forget about me and the other American Detainees,’ Griner wrote. ‘Please do all you can to bring us home. I voted for the first time in 2020 and I voted for you. I believe in you. I still have so much good to do with my freedom that you can help restore. I miss my wife! I miss my family! I miss my teammates! It kills me to know they are suffering so much right now. I am grateful for whatever you can do at this moment to get me home.’

After missing his entire second season in the NBA, James Wiseman is on track to soon be back in game action and show why he was the No. 2 pick in the draft two years ago. “Today felt great,” Wiseman said on June 29. “I feel good out there with the guys and just everything about it. I’m speechless. I feel good just playing again.”
Moses Moody’s 2022 California Classic debut was set to steal the show Sunday night at Chase Center for the Warriors’ summer league showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers. Behind closed doors, there was a development just as important taking place earlier in the day. S Some Warriors summer league players, and even coaches, started shuffling in late before tipoff on their home court. Why? James Wiseman and a handful of others were going through a 5-on-5 scrimmage, which served as a bit of a warmup for some players. “James was able to do that, looked really good,” Warriors California Classic coach Seth Cooper said to reporters. “For James, that was a pretty live day. I was on the court for some of that, but everything I heard was that that went really well and he looked really good.”
Sunday marked the first time that Wiseman played a true 5-on-5 game up and down the court in this Ramping Up 2.0. Wiseman still won’t play in the Warriors’ final California Classic game Tuesday, but his latest positive step continues to have him on track to play in the Las Vegas Summer League, which would be his summer league debut despite him going into Year 3. “Yeah, I think that’s the plan,” Cooper said. ” I haven’t heard anything one way or the other, but I know today was a good step and that he looked really good playing.”
