The 2012 NBA Draft is a week away and the rumors are swirling all over as to player values and where a particular prospect might fall. The latest buzz from Chad Ford of ESPN is that Thomas Robinson is finished working out for teams after Friday’s appearance with the Charlotte Bobcats, and that he will be going up against UConn center Andre Drummond in the process.
Robinson is usually projected at the No. 2 pick in most mock drafts, but Robinson could go anywhere in the top half of the lottery. The Bobcats could certainly use him, but it’s hard to tell who they like more than another.
Ford writes: The workout in Charlotte will be a big one for him. He’s going head-to-head against Andre Drummond there. The Bobcats really liked Kidd-Gilchrist in his workout because of his aggressiveness and toughness. If Robinson can match that intensity on Friday, I think he has the leg up to go No. 2."
The Bobcats have also been rumored to be in love with Harrison Barnes of UNC.
