Grizzlies Workout D.J. White/Negedu Visits Tigers

The Top Big Man from the Hoosier Donned Memphis Grizzlies Practice Gear
Thursday at FedExForum..

Indiana Power Forward D.J. White is among three NBA Draft Hopefuls working for the Grizz.

At 6'9", 251 pounds, White is the reigning Big 10 Player of the Year and is voted by the U.S. Basketball writers as a Second Team All-American.

He averaged 17-points and 10-rebounds a game his Senior Season.

Most Draft Boards project White as a second rounder..but the Grizzlies are taking a good look at him for the Second pick late in the First round.

(White) "projections are just other people's opinions, they're not the ones making the decisions. As for the mock drafts and things like that, I try not to listen to those."

(Grizzlies Player Personnel Director Tony Barone) "I think his positioning in the NBA is he's gonna be one of those small fours who can play. He can shoot the ball, and he's very quick off his feet, so we thought it was a great workout."

Also working out today, 6'11" Center Brian Butch of Wisconsin, and 6'9" Forward James Mays of Clemson.

The NBA Draft is June 26th.
