Phoenix Suns NBA Draft Workout #10: Reggie Bullock the headliner, plus local guys Carrick Felix and Solomon Hill

USA TODAY Sports

The Suns are more than 70 players into this process, down to the last few guys before hunkering down and focusing on callbacks. There are only 6 days left, with the Phoenix Suns allowed to bring guys in as late as Wednesday night.

Only 6 days till the draft!

Today was upper classmen day. All but Reggie Bullock was a senior in college last year, and Bullock just finished his junior year. None of them were younger than 22, which some people consider old for an NBA draftee.

The headliner of this workout was Reggie Bullock and lucky for the media on a Saturday he didn't demand a solo workout.

"Top to bottom, this might be the deepest group we had," Ryan McDonough said after the workout. "No weak links."

Reggie Bullock

If the Suns want a 3-and-D guy at 30, Reggie Bullock might be the guy. The 22-year old junior is a swingman who's biggest attribute is shooting. He is the 11th-best 3-point shooter in UNC history at .387, making 188 of them (good for eighth in school history).

"I think the guys who can defend and shoot with size are becoming more and more valuable in the NBA now," McDonough said. Reggie fits that mold as a high percentage three-point shooter. He can also defend some twos and threes.

McDonough got good intel on the UNC guys from Kendall Marshall. Bullock and Marshall were roommates even.

Local guys

Carrick Felix made a name for himself last year at ASU by playing scrappy D and improving his shooting stroke. He is a high-energy player loved by coaches thanks to his good effort and high IQ. At the workout, Felix ran the most lines in the end-of-workout drill of anyone this month.

Felix just might be a second-rounder this year, much like Solomon Hill of UofA. Hill played all four years at UofA just like Felix did for ASU, usually a bad sign for NBA potential. But both guys may have gotten themselves into the second round consideration. He makes his money on 3-pointers from the SF position.

Notes

  • None of the players has changed their stock significantly since the end of the college season. "These workouts help, as a supplement, but I go more on film from the season."
  • Regarding mock drafts: "The guys that do them have a tough job. If the guys at the top of the draft don't know who they're picking, how can the later teams? There's no subset of players, even at 5, that you can say 'that guy won't be there'."
  • Planning for #5 being difficult: "The teams in the top 4 won't definitively decide what they're doing until they are on the clock."
  • Regarding injuries in the top 5-10: "We have the medical on all the guys, and if we had some questions we did some additional work. There are obviously guy who have had injuries and may be considered higher risk than others, so we have our medical team on it. Dr. Carter and Aaron Nelson are very thorough."
  • "Not every team will see the same medical records the same way."
  • "It is unique this year that three of the top 6, 8, 10, however you rank them, have been injured. But at least they played this year."
