I'd like to consider myself a die hard Rockets fan, but the activities leading up to the draft are the things I know least about. I am a student at Sam Houston State and I've come to find out that our PG Ashton Mitchell and our SG Corey Allmond have both worked out for the Rockets this summer.
You may have heard about Corey Allmond because of the spectacular game against Kentucky hitting 11 3 pointers, but I was at every home game and I never imagined that either one of them would have a chance of playing in the NBA. I thought they may have a shot to play in another country if that's something they wanted to do, but never a shot to go to the NBA.
So I'm looking for someone who knows more about this. Just how many players do the Rockets actually work out leading up to the draft? Why would players of the caliber be getting a work out? I'd appreciate the insight.
