Anthony Davis, the likely No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, will conduct a solo workout with the New Orleans Hornets on Tuesday, the team announced. Davis will almost certainly be the Hornets' pick when the 2012 NBA Draft kicks off on June 28, so the workout is mostly a formality.
The Hornets have not officially declared their intentions to select Davis with the No. 1 pick, but it's all but a foregone conclusion that he will be the guy. The NBA refuses to let the team with No. 1 pick announce its selection before the live broadcast of the draft, which explains why the Hornets have not said anything.
Davis has not conducted any workouts to this point, but his body of work in college is enough to make him the obvious top pick. The Kentucky star recently announced his decision to have Wasserman Media Group represent him, ending the last bit of suspense surrounding his draft status.
