Gray, Lowry having private workouts 

June, 6, 2006
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Pitt coach Jamie Dixon is protecting his investment and will accompany junior center Aaron Gray to Orlando on Wednesday for a workout currently scheduled for Thursday in front of NBA personnel.

Gray will be in town for a physical at the Orlando predraft camp, but will have the private workout instead of participating in the camp. Dixon said the schedule still isn't set, but that this was the best-case scenario to put Gray on display. Gray had considered going through a workout in the Northeast, but couldn't settle on a date or place.

Gray is considered by most NBA personnel to be a first-round pick. How high he could go is still unknown. In a one-on-none workout, Gray's athleticism issue likely won't be solved. It's not known how drill and skill work will move him up, but NBA folks have seen these kinds of workouts from big men for years.
