Draft Notes: Josh Jackson, Fultz, Smith Jr., Heat

Kansas forward Josh Jackson paid a visit to Kings today, but didn’t go through a workout, tweets Ailene Voisin of The Sacramento Bee. Jackson is expected to be one of the first players selected next week and probably won’t be around for Sacramento’s pick at No. 5. There have been rumors that the Kings would like to move up, but a report today said they aren’t willing to give the Sixers the fifth and 10th picks to get No. 3.

There’s more from a full day of draft workouts:

    Hmmm…I wonder if some teams in that range might like Donovan Mitchell, or need a wing like Justin Jackson, and consider taking them over Dennis Smith. I still have him going to Orlando, Dallas or Sacramento, Philly is also a trade possibility. I still think he goes top 9

    I’m fine with the non workout from Harry Giles, as I wasn’t interested in him for the Heat anyway. I’m not enthused by what I’ve seen from Giles in games or at the combine, especially in consideration with his injuries…

    I don’t know what to think yet about the Heat’s spot in the draft. The guys I’m most interested in probably go ahead of 14, especially with teams like Charlotte, Detroit, and Denver in front of them…

    OG would be an interesting grab for them, since they don’t really need too much from their pick this year and/or it could also allow them to explore moving 1 or 2 guys, if necessary. Heat have McGruder, but could always use another defensive wing/small ball 4, and if his offense develops, that’s a really good asset. But i think he could go to Denver at 13, as they could really use the help defensively on the wing…Justin Jackson, Donovan Mitchell (I expect both to go 10-12 with Luke Kennard possibly there as well), Justin Patton, TJ Leaf, Zach Collins, Bam Adebayo, Ike Anigbogu, Terrance Ferguson, and Isaiah Hartenstein hold my interest, but the Heat have always been tight lipped about the guys they workout. Theres actually been some talk of Markannen falling, but that scenario makes me skeptical about teams belief he can do anything other than shoot it. Obviously, trades ahead of them could change some things, but it’s a wide range of guys that could end up at 14. I actually like a few guys at the end of the 1st round and into the 2nd, like Semi Ojelye and Jordan Bell…I could also see the Heat making the pick, and then trading it
