Courtney Fells Working Out for NBA Teams

We talked with Courtney Fells agent yesterday, Jamie Knox, who is also a former Pack player, and he gave us an update on Courtney. He told us that Courtney would be working out with the Oklahoma City Thunder today (May 8th), with the Houston Rockets and a collection of three/four teams on May 15th and San Antonio on May 18th. If Courtney makes enough noise at these workouts, hopefully he will find his way into the Chicago Pre-Draft Combine that will be held on May 27-31 at Grover's ATTACK Athletics Gym. Jamie told us that he would keep us updated on how the workouts go, so stay posted.

We were a little curious how the Chicago Pre-Draft Combine operates and did a little digging. Here is what we found in article written by Chad Ford of ESPN:

"The gym is nicer than virtually every NBA practice facility, so it should be a great venue.

However, unlike in past years, there will be no 5-on-5 scrimmages. Players will do athletic testing like vertical jumps and bench pressing, go through light drills and then go through a battery of medical tests. NBA teams will also be allowed to interview players one-on-one. The NBA expects to invite about 55 prospects.

    Courtney impresses when he has reason to play. Hopefully he makes it to the NBA.

    The one guy I would get most upset about...Just because he has SO much potential and I think everyone can see that. Very inconsistent as well. IF he figures out how to correct the flaws of his game (i.e. ball control, passing, attacking the rim) and gets that killer instinct of taking control of the game, he can be a good NBA player. It'll take some work though. Good luck to him tho
