Coach Jeff Hornacek and Jared Ornoski talked about the prospects from todays workout (sorry for all the background noise):
Corey Hawkins is the son of ex-NBA all-star Hersey Hawkins. In high school he attended Estrella Foothills in Goodyear, Arizona. He finished his senior season at Estrella 3rd in the nation in scoring (36.0 ppg). He had a game against Chino Valley where he scored 65 points, including 14 threes. He was a part of three state title teams during his time at Estrella. Corey is an excellent shooter who has NBA ready form and range. He shot 49% from three his senior season at UC Davis. He needs to work on his playmaking if he is to become an NBA point guard, but he is a capable passer. He a good rebounder for his position.
In his interview Cory Hawkins talked about the workout, what it's like being the son of an NBA player, and growing up with Seth and Steph Curry:
Graham has an NBA ready body for the shooting guard position. His measurables are 6'6", 220lbs, with only 5.5% body fat, and a 6'10.5" wingspan. He is a good shooter, he shot 38% from deep his senior season at VCU. Graham is also a really good rebounder, he was able to pull down 7.1 rebounds per game his senior year.
