This year's draft is generally regarded as a deep one, but several teams outside the lottery are looking to trade their first-round picks so they can avoid making financial commitments to players who won't contribute right away, Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld writes. That should make for an interesting month ahead as the June 28 draft approaches.
- Thomas Robinson will work out for no more than four teams, agent Tony Dutt says, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times (Twitter link). That's not entirely surprising, given that he's likely to go somewhere between No. 2 and No. 5. The only effect might be on teams looking to trade up to a top-five pick.
- Small forward Robbie Hummel, hoping he'll climb into the second round, is trying to regain some of the lift he lost after tearing his right ACL twice in college, as Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes. "I was getting better towards the end of the season, but it wasn't close to [100 percent]," Hummel said. "Heck, I only had one dunk this year. I'm a 6-8 forward and I had one dunk. Probably not a good thing. But it's coming back."
- The Sixers will hold a private workout tomorrow for guards Doron Lamb and Scoop Jardine, according to CSNPhilly.com. Lamb is ranked the 33rd best prospect by DraftExpress.com, while Jardine isn't on the site's top 100 list. Philadelphia holds the 15th, 45th and 54th picks in the draft, as shown on our list of draft picks by team.
