As has become a custom around these parts, Wednesday's workouts in anticipation of the 2011 NBA Draft are listed below.
The Denver Nuggets have a solid workout scheduled according to the Denver Post. Along with Kenneth Faried, Denver plans to workout Klay Thompson, Tobias Harris, Tyler Honeycutt, JaJuan Johnson and the D-League's very own Chukwudiebere Maduabum.
Since NBA draftniks are probably familiar with the other five names -- or should be at least -- Maduabum is probably the most interesting name on the list. The 6-foot-9 forward from Nigeria played just twenty minutes total during his D-League stint so I can't offer much of a scouting report, but I do know he's really athletic and probably won't be drafted.
The New Jersey Nets will bring in a group on Wednesday that includes Darius Morris of Michigan, Kyle Singler of Duke, E`Twaun Moore of Purdue, Cleveland State's Norris Cole, Marquette's Jimmy Butler and Chandler Parsons of Florida. Is it just me or has Singler not been mentioned much since the NBA Draft Combine?
The Washington Wizards will host Shelvin Mack, Marshon Brooks, La`Shard Anderson, Jamel McLean and Malcolm Thomas. I feel like a bad person, but I had to look up Anderson and McLean to figure out why they were getting a look and if they had previous experience playing basketball (they do).
In another workout that seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel (but not quite as badly as the Wizards), the New York Knicks will workout Corey Fisher, Andrew Goudelock, Matt Howard, Delroy James, Howard Trey Thompkins and Carleton Scott.
The Detroit Pistons will workout Kemba Walker, Alec Burks and Jacob Pullen according to Matt Dery on Twitter. The Pistons don't believe in announcing all of their participants, so there will probably be three others in attendance, but those are probably the best-known names.
The Philadelphia 76ers will workout seemingly every other prospect not mentioned above, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, including Keith Benson, Justin Harper, Nikola Vucevic, Jordan Williams, Jordan Hamilton, Scotty Hopson, Malcolm Lee, Josh Selby and Chris Singleton. Even more interesting is the fact that not all possible first round picks are spurning the Sixers offer to pay for players to play basketball in front of them.
