Wenyen Gabriel to work out for the Sacramento Kings today

The NCAA’s deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft is next Wednesday, May 30, making this a big week for pre-draft workouts. Wenyen Gabriel will start his week in Sacramento, where he’ll work out for the Kings:

On May 12, Wenyen worked out for the Utah Jazz. Joining him in today’s workout are Trevon Bluiett (Xavier), Jevon Carter (West Virginia), Caleb Martin (Nevada), Cameron Reynolds (Tulane), and Gabe Vincent (UC Santa Barbara).

Last season, Wenyen averaged 6.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game and established himself as a three-point threat, hitting almost 40 percent from beyond the arc. He’s not listed on any of the major mock drafts or top 100 prospect rankings, but may be prepared to explore a professional career regardless; good performances at workouts like this one would certainly help.

    Part of me want to wish Wenyen good luck, but the selfish UK fan in me wants him to not do so well and come back for another year. 😉

    I agree with your sentiments RCF. Maybe someone in the NBA will throw out Wenyens 7-7 hot night as a freak occurrence and see his 3pt % is only 33% just a little better than the prior season.

    Selfish me really wants him back. I love the things he does.

    The truth is that he has to have a absolutely spectacular workout to get drafted at this point, so wishing him to only have a “good” one should not be too risky for fans wanting him back.

    He is a small forward with no ball handling skills. Are there any NBA players at that position who can’t dribble? That said, I can understand if his family’s financial situation sends him overseas.
