Our Draft Updates post chronicles the rumors we've been hearing throughout the day, and Sam Amick of SI.com has a piece that warrants its own post. Amick details the latest on Bradley Beal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Harrison Barnes, Thomas Robinson and Damian Lillard, players who could be taken with picks two through six.
- The Cavs are likely to approach the Bobcats about swapping the second and fourth picks, Amick reports. The Cavs are infatuated with Beal, and he probably won't get past the Wizards at No. 3, Amick says, adding that if Beal is gone by the time the Wizards pick, Washington will go with Kidd-Gilchrist.
- If the Bobcats keep the No. 2 pick, there's continued uncertainty over whom they will take, with Kidd-Gilchrist, Robinson and Barnes in the running. Robinson can do plenty to help his chances with a strong workout against Andre Drummond tomorrow, Amick says.
- Beal, Barnes, Kidd-Gilchrist and Robinson have all declined to work out for Sacramento, meaning the Kings may wind up using the No. 5 pick on a player they haven't seen in person.
- The Blazers might be able to use pick No. 11 on Damian Lillard instead of No. 6, as teams drafting between those selections have other targets, and Lillard is resisting the efforts of the Hornets, who own the 10th pick, to have him work out for the team.
