If they won't come to you, you gotta go to them.

ESPN's Chad Ford Tweeted out an interesting tidbit tonight.

The Kings own the 8th pick in the draft, the Nuggets the 11th, the Wolves the 13th pick, and the Warriors do not have a first round pick. The Nuggets have held three predraft workouts (with a fourth scheduled for Thursday, June 19th, morning) and none included the two sharpshooters: McDermott and Stauskas.

Who knows why the prospects didn't come to Denver, but the most likely reason is that they each expect to get drafted before the Nuggets pick at 11. Kind of interesting that the Kings had to travel to Chicago since they own the 8th pick, but perhaps the two have limited their workouts for reasons unknown.

Anyhow, glad the Nuggets got a look at these guys and here is some video on both:
