It's another busy day for individual workouts as the countdown to draft night in the NBA continues. We'll do a quick overview of the action today highlights by a couple of elite mid-major guards.
Per Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld, Butler's Shelvin Mack will be amongst a handful of prospects working out in Charlotte today. The Bobcats are owners of picks No. 9, 19 and 39 (2nd round) and given that their current back-up option for D.J. Augustin is Shaun Livingston, there's good reason to think Michael Jordan and Co. may be interested in using one of those three picks to bring in a floor general. Mack - who is currently projected as a mid-second round pick by most mock boards - could be a possible option for the Bobcats with their third and final selection.
Charleston scoring machine Andrew Goudelock will be working out for the Spurs today according to what he told the Post and Courier. We've talked about the possible desire for San Antonio to bring on another point guard with Tony Parker getting older and Goudelock shows quite a bit of potential to make the shift from scorer to facilitator, while still packing a long-range punch of course. His impressive shooting and athletic testing marks from the NBA Combine in Chicago certainly help matters as well. Could the Spurs surprise and grab him at No. 29 in a similar fashion to how they landed George Hill a few years ago? Temple's Lavoy Allen is also expected to be at the workout.
The Hoops Report's workout database tells us that today is big man day in the Hoosier State. The Pacers are welcoming a quad of frontcourt players including Fresno State's Greg Smith and San Diego State's Malcolm Thomas. Indiana owns picks No. 15 and No. 42, but do they need to add depth to their frontcourt? Currently the Pacers will have Roy Hibbert, Tyler Hansbrough and James Posey under contract for next season. Jeff Foster, Solomon Jones and Josh McRoberts are not. If Indiana decides it would be most cost effective to draft a young big man who could take a year or two to develop, both Thomas and Smith are projected to be available at pick 42. DraftExpress has both going in the final five picks in their latest mock.
