Pierre Jackson impresses at N.J. workout
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The NBA held its first large NBA draft workout of the year on Wednesday and Thursday.
The New Jersey workout and another in Minnesota next week represent the last chances for NBA scouts to see players competing in five-on-five scrimmages. Per NBA rules, players no longer participate in five-on-five scrimmages at the NBA draft combine, and teams are limited to having the players go three-on-three in individual team workouts.
Virtually every team in the league showed up at the event, including a large number of GMs.
Overall, just one of our top 30 prospects attended the event and just four of our top 60.
ESPN was at the event both days and spoke with a number of NBA executives and scouts in attendance to get their take on standout players. Opinions varied wildly among scouts and execs, which seems to be the norm for this draft.
Here's a look at how some of the standouts fared for better or for worse.
