More on Draft Workouts

Bill Koch: Catching up on this from earlier this morning -- Peter Kiss will work out for the Celtics on May 3 and the Knicks on May 12. Source said the former @BryantHoops standout is drawing some legitimate NBA attention.
Robin Washnut: Former #Nebrasketball guard Teddy Allen will work out for the Boston Celtics on May 11. He put his name back in the portal, but he’s all in on the NBA right now.
In a matter of hours, one chapter of Michael Devoe’s life was closing and another opening. Monday morning, the former Georgia Tech guard was one of six NBA draft hopefuls working out at the Hawks facility before coaches and scouts. Later that day, he was to take his last final exam – dreaded finite math – as a Tech student to complete his requirements for his business administration degree.
Ryan Wolstat: FWIW, Brian Windhorst said on his podcast word was Suggs had a bad workout with the Raptors. A source with no affiliation with Raptors told me they’d heard the same.
Noah Magaro-George: Alex Antetokounmpo says the Spurs hosted him for a pre-draft workout. The 19-year-old forward also worked out for the Pacers and Rockets.
Aaron Rose: Michigan’s Franz Wagner worked out for the Raptors, according to Jonathan Givony
Chris Grenham: The Celtics had two separate pre-draft workout groups today, according to sources. A few of the names: Austin Reaves, Oklahoma Luka Garza, Iowa LJ Figueroa, Oregon Javonte Smart, LSU Ethan Thompson, Oregon St Alan Griffin, Syracuse Dru Smith, Missouri Chandler Vaudrin, Winthrop
The Los Angeles Lakers announced workouts for five more players ahead of the NBA draft. The new group includes Brandon Boston Jr. of Kentucky, Moses Wright of Georgia Tech, Jose Alvarado of Georgia Tech, Spencer Littleton of Toledo and MaCio Teague of Baylor. Boston, a 6’7″ forward, played one season at Kentucky and averaged 11.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.3 steals in 30.3 minutes. He shot 35.5 percent overall on 11.6 attempts and 30 percent from deep on 4.0 attempts.
Oklahoma’s Austin Reaves is one of the most intriguing prospects projected by many to go in the second round, and Boston is one of the numerous teams expressing interest in the 23-year-old guard. Reaves is set to workout with the Celtics on Tuesday, according to sources. A workout this close to draft night is a sure sign of interest from Boston, which should not come as a surprise to those who know Reaves’ game.
One NBA scout that I spoke with at the NBA Draft Combine said he did not have concerns with Reaves’ shooting numbers at Oklahoma, pointing toward his film at Wichita State and his 85.7% free throw clip in two years with the Sooners. Simply put, Reaves took a ton of contested shots at Oklahoma. His role as a combo guard with NBA spacing should get him much better looks at the next level.

Warriors stars open to reunion with Kevin Durant

If a trade is possible, would the leaders of the locker room welcome Durant? According to multiple sources, they would, for the same reason they embraced him in 2016. “I mean,” one source said, “it’s freaking Kevin Durant.” The Warriors superstars have been in conversations with Durant. In addition to catching up, the Hall of Fame-bound peers did entertain the idea of a reunion.
The Warriors could undoubtedly put together one of the best packages for a Durant trade. And for a front office known for unearthing every stone, they’d have to vet the chance to add Durant. With that said, according to multiple sources in the Warriors organization, a reunion is highly unlikely. Nothing about the last three years suggests the Warriors would be willing to pay the price for a KD return. That price is likely (and reportedly) an All-Star-caliber player, young talent and a heap of draft picks.
The Rockets will also promote Mahmoud Abdelfattah after he led the Rio Grande Valley Vipers to the G League championship. Abdelfattah was a Vipers assistant coach in their 2018-19 G League championship season and was promoted to head coach the following season. Mike Batiste, a Wizards assistant who like Hollins played at Arizona State, will also join the Rockets staff.
