A couple of new names have been added yesterday and today.
and who were they? it is fair to ask that if you mentioned such additions it is worth listing their names.

thanks.
I'm keeping a Google doc where I put all the players we are working out. It's linked on the first post and in my sig
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

you vs. the guy she tells you not to worry about

Amida Brimah in particular is interesting. Isn't a scoring big by any means but he's a good shot blocker.

Derrick Jones has huge upside.  Good option in the 2nd round.

Since I live in Idaho I've been intrigued with Boise State's Webb.  6'9, lean and long athlete.  Shot well from 3 last year but really dropped off this year.  Seems like a good late 2nd pick.

No one so far really intrigues me. I want to see some of the first round talent start to get looks. So far they seem to be concentrating on second round talent.

I think they're all focused on the combine right now.  We'll see the 1st rounders in the coming weeks after the combine.

Hi guys. Been a little busy so wasn't able to update this but it seems we didn't get any updates on workouts until today's Combine. I've updated the doc with new names. If I've missed any names please let me know!
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

Updated. We have a tentative workout with Brandon Ingram (based on lottery results).

Glad to see Jake Layman, almost impossible not to draw a Chandler Parsons comp with him. Like the idea of having an SF who can get his shot off with a high release point. Some are saying that he was underutilized at Maryland the past 2 years.

Amida Brimah and Chinanu Onuaku are 2 names that stick out for me. Even offensive clinics like the Warriors and Spurs typically try to have a guy or 2 on the roster who  can muck thing's up. Brimah seems like he can switch on the pick and roll well too.

It'll be fascinating to see where Malik Pope goes, his ceiling would probably be a role similar to modern day Sean Livingston. Former top tier athlete who can still get his shot off on smaller and less talented players despite the drop in athletic ability caused by his injuries.

When can the Celts start interviewing/workout Simmons, D Murray and Sabonis?

I would think that after the lottery drawing, top prospects will start scheduling interviews and private workouts with teams based on where they're drafting.

So they could now. But holding off?

I really like the prospect of Onuako as a perk like glue guy center. Not a center who I ever expect to put up big stats but has solid size, great mobility, and seems to have solid IQ.
