Clippers Work Out Several Point Guards

Preparing for the NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Clippers have recently worked out six point guards. Here’s the list:

  • Pierre Jackson – Baylor
  • Nate Wolters – South Dakota State
  • Myck Kabongo – Texas
  • Isaiah Canaan – Murray State
  • Mark Lyons – Arizona
  • Erick Green – Virgina Tech

This is the second work out the Clippers have had in the past two weeks, working out wing players the first week.

Much like the previous workout, which was highlighted by Arizona swingman Solomon Hill, it seemed the focus was to put the group through some physical duress. Late in the morning, after playing 3-on-3, showing their ability to close out defensively, and running through a variety of shooting drills, each player was required to push the ball up the center of the floor, throw a chest pass and receive a return pass for a 3-pointer from straightaway alternating ends of the court for 8-10 shots in succession.

According to the press release, the Clips plan to work out more players in the coming weeks. The NBA Draft is on June 27 where the team has the rights to the 25th overall selection.
