Ira Winderman: Miami Heat planning pre-draft workout for Alonzo Mourning’s son. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… Georgetown forward Trey Mourning already has had pre-draft workouts with the Wizards and Kings.
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.
Josh Newman: Eric Carter will work out for the Nets on June 18, I’m told. Former Jackson Memorial star was at the Sixers yesterday.
Fred Katz: Wizards announce the group coming in for pre-draft workouts tomorrow: Kavell Bigby-Williams ,Jordan Caroline, Aubrey Dawkins, William McDowell-White, Justin Robinson, Elijah Thomas

Vasilije Micic cost too much for NBA teams?

Any team looking to acquire Micic would have to give Oklahoma City some draft compensation—preferably a first-rounder, though it’s possible the price could have been brought down. “I think that was where it was a little too much for teams,” one Western Conference executive said. “No one wanted to give up a pick plus everything else it would take. The guy can play, I think he’d be good in the NBA. But no one wanted to give up picks and money for him.”
“I knew what the move was,” Hyland told The Denver Post last week via Zoom. “They were already contacting me before and letting me know what was happening. After the moves even happened, the coaches called me, players called me, like, ‘Time to just go out there and be Bizzy. It’s a big opportunity for you.’ And they tell me every day, like, ‘You’re going to have a big role, big opportunity, a lot more minutes, just to just go out there and be yourself.’”
If he’s going to become a staple of Denver’s crunch-time rotation, simultaneously earning trust from coach Michael Malone, Hyland knows he needs to become a more consistent two-way player. “I think it’s moreso the defensive part, but I know I can guard,” he said. “I wasn’t the player this year who got picked on. When I put my mind to it, I know I can guard. … That’s just something I gotta do and be willing to do every possession.”
