Point Guard Emmanuel Mudiay is one of the more mysterious players in this upcoming draft due to his season abroad playing for China. Mudiay decided to play in China after facing eligibility issues as a true freshman at SMU. After appearing in only 12 games because of an ankle injury teams will have to assess the risk of drafting Mudiay having only a small sample size to work with. Now Mudiay will get his chance to impress teams with in-person workouts in the near future.

The Following From Adam Zagoria of SNY.TV:

Larry Brown says Emmanuel Mudiay is expected to work out for the Lakers, Sixers and Knicks, the teams picking 2, 3 and 4 in the NBA Draft.

A second source told SNY.tv that the order of the workouts will go Lakers first, Knicks second and then the
Sixers last. Mudiay has been working out in New York, including at House of Sports in Ardsley to prepare for NBA workouts.

“Emmanuel Mudiay is going to make everyone on his team better,” Brown, the former Knicks and current SMU coach, told The 4 Quarters Podcast on Monday.

Although it’s difficult to see the Lakers passing on either Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns at two, the Knicks and 76ers could be potentially landing spots for the 19 year old guard. Our Mock Draft has Philadelphia selecting D’Angelo Russell at three and New York drafting Mudiay at four. Things will obviously change though between now and June 25th but Mudiay appears a lock to be drafted in the top 4 picks.
