NBA Draft Rumors Thursday 6/19/2014
We’ve got some major NBA draft news on this Thursday morning. The NBA Draft is one week away and many teams are getting their final workouts in.
Joel Embiid has suffered from a stress fracture in his right foot and will be having surgery on Friday. This of course hurts his draft stock immensely, but now some of the lower seeded teams have a chance at a great player.
Marcus Smart is reportedly refusing to workout for the Utah Jazz which has some thinking that he could have a guarantee in the top 4. It could also simply mean that he doesn’t want to play for Utah and hopes if he isn’t in the top 4, he slides to #6 and Boston or to #7 and the Lakers.
In a surprise move the Cavs are going to have Dante Exum workout for them. It is being speculated that this could mean the Cavs are trying to trade down to pickup a player along with a lower pick. More than likely the Cavs are just doing their due diligence and are looking at all possible prospects.
