Certain Teams To Skip Live Workouts Ahead Of NBA Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Oct 18, 2020 5:14 pm

A number of teams are expected to skip the live workout day for prospects ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post.


Pre-draft workouts this year will take place in a designated city, with scouts allowed to watch the workouts in person.


1-on-1 interviews are expected to be granted during the event, but are not guaranteed.


Certain teams believe that the risk of COVID-19 outweigh the rewards of insight gleaned from the workout, with executives believing that the best way to watch a prospect is during college practices.


“Doing your own homework and own background checks are more important,’’ one executive told Berman.

Hopefully these teams are better at judging talent than they are at judging the seriousness of a virus that would have little to no impact upon their scouts.
