Kawhi Leonard To Work Out For Kings Friday, But No Other Top NBA Draft Prospects Involved

Another candidate for the Sacramento Kings' No. 7 pick -- San Diego State forward Kawhi Leonard -- will be heading into town on Friday, the team announced. But none of the other small forward prospects (Marcus Morris, Chris Singleton, Klay Thompson) mentioned in the lottery range will be working out with him.

Leonard will be sharing the workout with Tennessee's Scotty Hopson (a legit option at No. 35), Kentucky's DeAndre Liggins, Michigan State's Kalin Lucas, the D-League's Jamine Peterson and, in news sure to please Mr. Biegler, point guard Mickey McConnell from St. Mary's.

Rumors suggest Texas power forward Tristan Thompson will be in town Saturday. Unlike previous years, in which Sacramento had huge workouts with multiple top-tier prospects competing head-to-head, the Kings have yet to hold a workout that had more than one legit top-10 prospect. Part of that is surely where the Kings are picking as compared to 2009 and 2010.

Leonard is a defensive-minded forward with underwhelming height but great length and huge hands. His offense is a question mark, but the top mock drafts have penciled him in for the Kings off and on. Chad Ford's latest mock draft has the Kings taking Leonard at No. 7.
