Hoopsworld; Wolves to possibly host large draft workout and more

 

From Steve Kyler/Hoopsworld:

Last year as NBA teams sought ways to reduce costs pertaining to the NBA draft several group workouts were conducted. NBA teams sent their talent staffs to one location and often saw 20 to 40 potential prospects work out.

The results were mixed, with some teams saying it was too many players at one time and agents saying they were unsure if the crowded group workouts helped their clients. The one thing that did come from the workouts is teams found a way to see guys on the bubble without incurring a lot of extra cost and they will be doing it again this year.

Word is there will be two group workouts this draft season – one in New Jersey and one in Minnesota. It's possible a third is scheduled, but as it stands now New Jersey and Minnesota are gearing up for as many as 40 potential prospects that will run in two-on-two and three-on-three situations.

 

From Howlin' T-Wolf:  Timberwolves’ Draft Board

 

From Jonah Ballow/Timberwolves site:

The team will continue to groom Flynn for the starting point guard spot but there is clear understanding that Sessions is capable of recording big time numbers in the future. This summer, Kahn said the coaching staff will work with Sessions to improve his outside jumper and extend his range out to the 3-point line, making him a more dangerous offensive threat.
