I'm just tossing this quick one into the FanPosts, as I sit here thinking out loud.
Hasheem Thabeet did not paricipate in the drills in Chicago. He is not working out for teams. Might this cause a drop in his draft standing? And if so, how does that impact the Kings?
To this point, it has almost been a given that Thabeet would go 2 or 3. But if he does not show the Griz and the Thunder the goods, will they pass? And if they do, which additional player gets chosen ahead of us in his place?
I can't imagine Petrie pulling the trigger on Thabeet if he does not participate in a workout here (or somewhere where GP can get a good look at him.
I'm not losing sleep over this, as I think that Griffin/Rubio/Evans/Jennings would all look good in a Kings uniform (heck, I might even feel that way about Harden/Hill/DeRozan/Holiday). I am, however, amazed that Thabeet and his handlers have taken this approach, and that it has not been mentioned as a potential threat to his current draft stock.
