ESPN Stats and Information
Zach Collins goes No. 10 overall. He's the highest-drafted Gonzaga player since Adam Morrison went No. 3 to the Bobcats in 2006.
The Trail Blazers will receive Gonzaga forward Zach Collins (via Kings), who was the No. 10 overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft on Thursday night.
Collins is a skilled big man who can score both inside and outside. He's a good rebounder and rim protector.
Gonzaga big man Zach Collins is projected as a lottery pick for Thursday's NBA draft. What are his strengths and weaknesses? We asked an NBA scout, then recruited a panel of ESPN experts and Collins himself to respond.
The Gonzaga forward withdrew from the NBA draft at the deadline, and now he'll have a much larger role in the Bulldogs' frontcourt.
Lakers to work out six Monday
The Lakers are set to host six prospects Monday for a pre-draft workout: Gonzaga F Zach Collins, Clemson G Avry Holmes, Creighton F Cole Huff, UC Irvine G Luke Nelson, Columbia F Luke Petrasek and Alabama-Huntsville F Seab Webster.
Williams-Goss, Hicks work out for Jazz
Utah held another pre-draft workout on Saturday, with Gonzaga G Nigel Williams-Goss, UNC big man Isaiah Hicks and Baylor F Johnathan Motley making up three of the six players in attendance. The Jazz currently own four picks (24th, 30th, 42nd and 55th) in Thursday's draft.
Other mock drafts have Gonzaga's 7-footer going later, but this isn't an ordinary mock draft. The Kings shouldn't pass on Collins if he's still around at No. 10.
Nuggets to work out six more Friday
The Denver Nuggets will continue their busy week of pre-draft workouts Friday, with Kentucky C Bam Adebayo, Belgian C Ismael Bako, Washington State G Ike Iroegbu, Gonzaga C Przemek Karnowski, North Carolina C Kennedy Meeks and George Washington G Jaren Sina scheduled to attend.
Collins is a high-percentage finisher with good touch at the free throw line. His skill level may allow him to play both frontcourt spots in the pros.
Next Nuggets workout scheduled Thursday
The Denver Nuggets will host Florida G Canyon Barry, Air Force G Hayden Graham, Miami F Kamari Murphy, Baylor F Johnathan Motley, Arizona G Kobi Simmons and Gonzaga G Nigel Williams-Goss for a pre-draft workout Thursday.
Hawks to work out six Wednesday
The Hawks announced they'll be hosting six prospects Wednesday for a pre-draft workout: Gonzaga C Przemek Karnowski, Cal G Jabari Bird, Loyola (Ill.) G Milton Doyle, Lehigh F/C Tim Kempton, Middle Tennessee F Reggie Upshaw, Colorado G Derrick White.
Indiana hosts seventh pre-draft workout
Six more players will be coming in to work out for the Pacers on Wednesday: Oregon G Dylan Ennis, Oklahoma State G Jawun Evans, Duke F Amile Jefferson, Virginia Tech F Zach LeDay, Fresno State G Paul Watson Jr. and Gonzaga G Nigel Williams-Goss.
Suns to work out Zach Collins
Phoenix announced that it will have the Gonzaga big man in for a pre-draft workout on Tuesday. Collins averaged 10 points and 5.9 rebounds in just 17.2 minutes per game last season for the Bulldogs.
Hornets to look at Williams-Goss and others Saturday
The Charlotte Hornets will continue pre-draft workouts as they bring in G Antonio Blakeney (LSU), G Torian Graham (Arizona State), F Amile Jefferson (Duke), F Kyle Kuzma (Utah), G Derrick Walton Jr. (Michigan) and G Nigel Williams-Goss (Gonzaga).
Hornets host first pre-draft workout
Charlotte will have six prospects participate in its first workout of the year on Wednesday: Arizona G Kadeem Allen, Wake Forest F Austin Arians, Davidson G Jack Gibbs, Notre Dame F V.J. Beachem, Louisville big man Mangok Mathiang and Gonzaga C Przemek Karnowski.
Changes ahead of Miami in Chad Ford's latest mock now have the Heat selecting a big man that could go as high as No. 9 and shouldn't slip past No. 14.
Wizards host workout for six prospects
Washington will be hosting Central Michigan G Marcus Keene, who led the NCAA in scoring last season, Monmouth G Justin Robinson, Gonzaga C Przemek Karnowski, Villanova F Kris Jenkins, Kansas C Landen Lucas and Florida State G Xavier Rathan-Mayes for its pre-draft workout on Tuesday.
Six prospects to work out for Raptors on Monday
The Toronto Raptors will conduct pre-draft workouts with F/C Justin Tuoyo (Chattanooga), SG Jordan Mathews (Gonzaga), G PJ Dozier (South Carolina), G Matt Jones (Duke), C Kennedy Meeks (North Carolina) and G Matt Thomas (Iowa State).
The PK80, a two-tournament event that will honor Nike co-founder Phil Knight, could feature a matchup between potential preseason No. 1 Michigan State and defending national champion North Carolina in one of the title games.
Two months after North Carolina, Gonzaga, Oregon and South Carolina left University of Phoenix Stadium, a lot has changed for each. Some face rebuilds. Some face major question marks. One faces the hard truth that tough days might be ahead.
This is a program that has succeeded for nearly 20 years under Mark Few. Despite all the losses from last season's team, now is not the time to wonder if that will cease.
