NBA Draft 2011: Rumors, News And Notes For Memorial Day Weekend

Before we get to the NBA Draft stuff, I wanted to wish everyone a happy Memorial Day weekend -- and to drop a quick link reminding of the meaning behind the three-day weekend. Now? On to the news, notes and recent rumors!

Most interestingly, ESPN's Chris Broussard just dropped a bomb on Twitter regarding a blockbuster trade featuring three of the top picks in the 2011 NBA Draft. Read more about it over at SB Nation Minnesota and then feel free to discuss it in the comments here.

The Utah Jazz are having a pre-draft workout on Sunday featuring Markieff MorrisJeremy Tyler, JaJuan Johnson, Shelvin Mack, Dallas Lauderdale and Norris Cole. Lauderdale's a pretty interesting name as I haven't heard his name mentioned since the Portsmouth Invitational but he did show some nice things with Ohio State.

My main man Michael Levin from Liberty Ballers does his best at defending what's being considered a pretty weak draft class. If nothing else, check it out for the graph he stole.

NBA.com says Tobias Harris is streaking up NBA Draft boards due to his work ethic. Interesting.

Anything else of interest out there?
