Chad Ford of ESPN has an extensive feature on NBA Draft prospect Bismack Biyombo.

Within a week, he had risen into the lottery on our Big Board. In a draft without a lot of players with big upside, he was intriguing. A week later, Scouts Inc.'s David Thorpe argued that he could be the No. 1 pick in the draft.

Kate Fagan of Deep Sixer has an update on the Sixers upcoming pre-draft workout.

Wednesday's workout will include Tyler Honeycutt (UCLA), Markieff Morris (Kansas), Antonio Pena (Villanova), Eniel Polynice (Seton Hall), and Xavier Silas (Northern Illinois).

Kate also explains the process of these workouts.

The first portion of the time is spent getting physical measurements of each prospect. The Sixers already have the measurements from various combines and workouts, but it's always helpful to see the results up close and personal. When we walked into the gym during one of the workouts last week, there was a height and vertical measurement system still plastered to the corner wall of the court. The last 45 minutes are spent going through drills. If all of the guys are basically the same position, the coaches will take them through a drill.
