The New Orleans Pelicans hosted their first round of pre-draft workouts Friday, June 14th. The reported attendees were University of Michigan point guard Trey Burke, Syracuse point guard Michael Carter-Williams, and Maryland center Alex Len.
Due to a stress fracture in his ankle, Len will not be able to engage in physical activity, but will undergo an interview process with team executives. Burke and Carter-Williams are generally considered the top rated point guard prospects.
After choosing not to extend a qualifying offer to small-forward Al-Faroq Aminu, the Pelicans may be looking to add talent to the wing. To, clarify, the Pelicans are stikk capable of re-signing Aminu. For future work-outs, I would expect the Pelicans to bring in some wing prospects such as Otto Porter, Victor Oladipo, and Shabazz Muhammed. Oladipo and Porter are expected to be chosen prior to New Orleans’ 6th pick, but expect the Pelicans to fully scout any prospective picks.
