Yeah, those are only the ones scheduled for this week. There's still another 3 weeks and a little before the draft itself.

Some reviews courtesy of Doug Smith on the Lopez & Koufos workouts.

Neither, right now, is the answer.

Lopez, as you’d expect, rebounds the ball better – at least he did in a three-on-three game we saw – is more energetic but has the offensive range of a Joakim Noah clone at the moment. The chin-high release of his jumper makes him an early favourite to lead the NBA in getting his shot blocked next year unless someone does some major corrective surgery on his stroke.

Koufos? I wonder about his motor. He shoots it well, with range, but they do this drill at the end of the workout where the already-tired players run baseline to baseline for three minutes.

I don’t want to say Koufos loafed (although you could have timed him with a sun dial) but he was taking his sweet time except for about the first 45 seconds and all of a sudden got to sprinting in the last 25 or 30 seconds. Full effort? I’m not sure. Hardly a way to impress.

Still, he’s a good shooter to just about three-point range and doesn’t mind some contact under the basket.

Koufos? Yuck. Why would we gamble on Koufos when our front-court is soft as it is?
