LAS VEGAS -- Our NBA draft workout tour kicks off in Las Vegas this year in search of a guy who a number of scouts say is the draft's true sleeper.

I spent the last two days with trainer Joe Abunassar of Impact Basketball in Vegas, looking at a number of prospects.

Abunassar has a great track record with clients like Kevin Garnett, Chauncey Billups, Danny Granger, Rudy Gay and Kawhi Leonard, to name a few.

Once again this year, he has a number of prospects in his gym preparing for the draft.

Here's what I learned:

  • A number of NBA scouts who I really respect have been telling me for more than a month that the real sleeper in this draft is Syracuse sophomore Dion Waiters.

    One GM went even further. "There are really only two potential superstars in this draft. One is a sure thing -- freshman Anthony Davis. The other one is Waiters. He can be an electric scorer in the NBA. There's some Dwyane Wade in him."
