Notre Dame shooting guard Blake Wesley has upcoming workouts scheduled with the Grizzlies, Heat and Bulls, Josh Robbins of The Athletic tweets. Wesley told Robbins he had already worked out for the Spurs, Cavaliers, Bucks and Pistons.
A potential first-round selection, the 6’5” Wesley is ranked No. 27 overall on ESPN’s Best Available list.
We have more draft-related news:
- International center prospect Kai Sotto will return to NBA team workouts this week on the West Coast after nursing a sprained ankle, Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog.com tweets. He already worked out for the Knicks, Magic and Hawks, among others. The 7’3” big man from the Philippines spent last season in Australia’s National Basketball League, averaging 7.5 PPG and 4.5 RPG for the Adelaide 36ers.
- The Rockets are sitting at the No. 3 spot and will presumably take the remaining big man in the trio of Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero, unless there’s a draft-day surprise. The Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen picks the brains of some NBA executives and a college coach to get a handle on how the trio’s skills will translate to the NBA.
- The Timberwolves brought in six prospects on Monday, Andrew Slater tweets. That group included Tyson Etienne (Wichita State), Jermaine Samuels (Villanova), Aminu Mohammed (Georgetown,) Justin Lewis (Marquette), Fanbo Zeng (G League Ignite) and Kalob Ledoux (Louisiana Tech).

Considering they missed out on the #1 pick, still works out great for the Rockets
If Wesley a shooter, Heat & Jimmy need offensive help especially off bench if Tyler starts, they trade Duncan Robinson.
Best thing that happen for Rockets. And should happen. Is OKC takes Holmgren. They could trade out. If someone wants Banchero that bad. I don’t see it.
All the fun should start at pick #4. Kings could trade here. Or they could go with Murray or Sharpe. Then the ball will roll.
