View Full Version : Last work-out #11
I'm following Chris Littmann (SportingNews.com) at the work-out today...Marcus Morris, J. Hamilton, B. Biyombo, J. Johnson are there...they're waiting for Chris Singleton but have Thomas Coleman (NC A&T) standing by if Singleton can't make it...I'll keep you updated...
Singleton is at the work out...
From Littmann: "Biyombo makes everyone hold their breath. Bangs knees with Singleton and goes down, but he's back up and fine it appears."
From Littman (who if you did not know is a big Biyombo guy): "Think we are close to winding down here in Charlotte. A lot of notes on Biyombo and I'll get an article up ASAP after the scrum."
From Littman:"Jordan Hamilton says he hears his draft range is 9-18."
"MarcusMorris says he thinks he'll go top 10, but you never know, he adds."

How crazy would it be if Biyombo smashed his knee in our workout, fought back and became Dwight like (after we pick him), then washes out like Roy because it's degenerative?
From Littman:"Paul Silas definitely sounds like he had a change of heart as to whether he thought Marcus Morris could play the 3. He sees it now."

A couple Q&A from the Chad Ford chat"
Any chance Kemba falls to the Bobcats at 9 or is his floor the Pistons?
Chad Ford (1:28 PM)
I think Pistons are likely to pass on Kemba. They're likely to go big. If he's there at 9, I could see the Bobcats grabbing him. Not their biggest need, but a big time talent to pass on.
What are you hearing about what the Bobcats are doing?? who are they targeting??
Chad Ford (1:29 PM)
Besides Kemba ... Chris Singleton, Marcus Morris, Alec Burks. They had Bismack Biyombo in for a late workout today. He'd be a good fit, but maybe too risky for the Bobcats."
This is the link for the Chris Littman (or Biyombo write up since he does not really talk about the other guys) after today's work out...I posted the story in the Biyombo thread...
They finally have the link up...
I like these two Q&As today:
"(On the strength of this draft and what he’s seen)
I don’t think that you can characterize it as a weak draft. I think you can say that there’s going to be a lot of quality players in the draft. Maybe the star quality of some other drafts, at the top of the draft, isn’t there so to speak, but you have to let these kids run their course, you’re not going to know what this draft is in terms of how well it’s talented until two or three years down the road when these kids have had an opportunity to play. Some of the positions that we’ve seen – some of the little kids, some of the power forwards, the overall depth of this draft. Some of the point guards are also pretty darn good. There’s going to be some quality players and I think we’re going to have three quality picks in the top forty."
"(On if he would pick someone who might not come over to the NBA immediately)
That would be a tough thing for us in getting someone who could possibly help us next year and playing some minutes for us. But you also have to factor in the scenario whomever that kid or who that player is, their value. His value going forward, if you’re willing to wait on a talent that becomes a game-changer, so to speak. That’s part of the process and that’s we do upstairs in evaluating this talent. "
