Kennedy: Orlando Magic GM Otis Smith Attends Group Draft Workout in New Jersey, Pays Attention to Darington Hobson

New, comments

The NBA Draft is drawing ever-closer, which helps to explain why Orlando Magic GM Otis Smith attended a group draft workout the New Jersey Nets hosted yesterday, according to Alex Kennedy. NetsDaily has more on that workout, which 18 teams visited, and featured 36 players, whose names you can find here.

One name of particular interest on that list, Kennedy tells me, is Darington Hobson, a lefty swingman from New Mexico. Kennedy says the Magic have already interviewed him once and have scheduled him for a private workout at a later date. NBADraft.net compares him to a "less explosive" version of Chris Douglas-Roberts.
