Chris Livingston Opts Out Of All Upcoming Pre-Draft Workouts

Kentucky forward Chris Livingston has opted out of all his upcoming pre-draft workouts, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Livingston had seven impending workouts still scheduled, according to Charania, who says the decision has fueled speculation that a team may have made him a draft promise.

Livingston is currently projected to be the No. 56 selection in ESPN’s latest mock draft. Given his standing on big boards, he may have received an offer for a guaranteed two-way deal on a team that particularly interests him, John Hollinger of The Athletic tweets, noting that Livingston would not need to be drafted in this hypothetical.

Assuming, however, that a team has promised to use a draft selection and standard roster spot on Livingston, Hollinger considers clubs with multiple second-round selections and available slots to be the prime candidates (Twitter link). The Hornets, Thunder and Wizards could be candidates, Hollinger adds.

The 6’6″ forward was named to the SEC All-Freshman team during his lone NCAA season with the Wildcats. Across 34 contests in 2022/23, he averaged 6.3 PPG and 4.2 RPG.
