As the draft nears, NBA teams will pit the most intriguing prospects head-to-head in hopes of gaining more insight for when judgement day arrives. After canceling his Sacramento Kings workout vs. Jimmer Fredette, Kemba Walker has rescheduled, just this time for the Utah Jazz. The duo could also be joined by guard Brandon Knight. With two picks in the lottery, this workout will be pivotal for Utah’s front-office. From the Salt Lake Tribune: “Fredette and Walker were set to work out together Thursday for Sacramento. However, Walker pulled out of the session due to a scheduling conflict. The duo attempted to pair up for several workouts during the build up toward the June 23 NBA Draft, but their lone remaining matchup is with the Jazz. Fredette said last Friday that he expects to work out for the Kings, Phoenix and Utah by mid-June. Meanwhile, Walker will reportedly work out Tuesday for Toronto, Wednesday for Detroit and June 13 for Sacramento. Walker is projected as an early first-round pick, while Fredette is expected to be chosen during the middle to late first round. Fredette tested well during the recent draft combine, though, and was impressive during workouts last week with Indiana and New York. With just 16 days remaining before selection day, Fredette wants to prove that he can compete with highly touted guards such as Walker and Knight.”
