The NBA Draft Cometh

Only a little more than a month away from the 2009 NBA Draft (June 25, 2009 at Madison Square Garden), and almost all the top prospects have signed on with agents.  This is the time when Jonathan Givony over at really gets pumping, delivering what I believe to be his best work of the year.  Givony has put together a great, sortable list of player workouts leading up to the draft.  It is regularly updated and includes players who have already performed workouts with various teams.

Also, Givony reports that this year there will be three major workouts, hosted by 3 NBA teams, with many other teams latching on to scout the highly touted players invited.  Golden State, Minnesota, and New Jersey are hosting, with the largest overall team turnout expected at the New Jersey workout.

Want to know who the players getting workouts have signed to represent them leading up to and following the draft?  Check out our most recent NBA Draft Signing Update.
