NBA Draft Workout Videos

Here are a bunch of workout videos from draft hopefuls. 1 stop for all the draft workouts.

Jabari Parker

Looks more explosive than he is thought to be. Didn't show it off here but I hope he is sharpening his post game. That could be a huge weapon for him.

Joel Embiid All you can say

Joel Embiid

All you can say is "Wow." Sure its just a workout setting but he looks impressive.. Size, speed, skill, explosiveness. Just for selfish reasons, I hope his back is okay..

Nik Stauskas Pure shooter.

Nik Stauskas

Pure shooter. Form is exactly the same every time. Has some sneaky quickness and a pretty good handle.

IDK

I watch the Payton workout too and I wasn't blown away by it... Very slow workout and Nik shot all mid range jumpers that were set shots... I'm not saying a workout tells me all I need to know about a player, just it wasn't at game speed... The end of the video had Mitch and Payne going that same speed... I wonder why...

TJ Warren I don't know if

TJ Warren

I don't know if its fair to do this or not but when looking at his workout vs Parker's, warren lacks some quickness and explosion. If he is that much behind Parker, who is labeled as a below average athlete, then wow..

I was going to say this I'm

I was going to say this I'm glad you touched on it. I know its just a workout but he is seriously underwhelming. No explosion, no quickness, even his dribble moves are ugly.

Usually you want to say man that guys is impressive but its an empty gym about workout videos. But this is just unimpressive.... And its an empty gym.

You Right but

Chad Ford tweeted earlier that TJ Warren didn't have the sexiest workout but was very impressive in the three on threes. He's a gamer, and would most likely have to sell a team on what he can do in a packed gym, rather than an empty one.

Beautiful stroke, but what

Beautiful stroke, but what impressed me here in this vid was his handles. Didn't know it was that tight.

Isaiah Austin

There is a noticeable lack of quickness to all of his movements.. That being said, he could be the best jump shooting big in this draft.

Elfrid Payton Video doesn't

Elfrid Payton

Video doesn't show much for a guy like this.. What you can see is that he has a big body with wide shoulders. He is built well for the PG spot. The more I hear about him, the more I like him.

I haven't watched all the workout videos yet, but late last night I were watching the interviews and came away very impressed on how well a lot of these guys can speak in that type of setting.

Just to note a few guys made me scratch my head.

Glen Robinson III He has all

Glen Robinson III

He has all the tools to become the best player in this draft. I don't know if he can play SG though and at 6'6, he will probably need to slide there at times. People compare him to Iggy and his body and athleticism are almost identical but his skillset isn't there.. Iggy is a fantastic passer and an average shooter. I think GR3 is an above average shooter and a below average passer..

Dwight Powell 6'10, tight

Dwight Powell

6'10, tight jumper, nice athleticism, and a Stanford brain.. Nobody will regret taking him with any pick after 20..

Russ Smith Not much here..

Russ Smith

Not much here.. Just more of what we know. He can dribble and get in the paint easy.. Did show off his jumper though.. If he proves he can shoot at a consistent rate, it could help him get drafted.

Do they have guys go

Do they have guys go one-on-one against each other in pre-draft workouts anymore? These guys look impressive but of course everyone looks impressive in a workout in a near empty gym with no defenders. Yi Jianlin absolutely dominated his workout against stationary chairs and look how he turned out in the NBA. Jabari does look like he has dropped a lot of weight and looked significantly quicker.

Cameron Bairstow Looks like

Cameron Bairstow

Looks like he is the strongest guy in the draft. Shoulders for days. Also, he has a very nice jumper.. Looks bad but is effective.

Jakarr Sampson Never heard

Jakarr Sampson

Never heard of this guy.. Not a bad athlete though.. If he is 6'10, he could make a roster.

As we get closer to the draft, there will be more and more of these videos. Lets keep this thread alive.. When you find a new video, post it here.

Apparantly they are working on a lot more videos. Guys like Aaron Gordon, Vonleh, Young, Smart, Exym and more.

Aaron Gordon

Aaron Gordon

When he dunks, it looks like he is on an 8 foot goal.. Jumping is too easy for this guy. Showed a nice handle for a big and the NBA has shown that it can be useful, like in Blake Griffin's case. Jumper is very ridgid and stiff but it seems servicable. Calling card is his defense and athelticism. Gotta love his bounce.
