NBA Draft Rumors: Jan Vesely To Work Out For Five Teams Sunday

Jan Vesely will work out for five teams on Sunday in his lone stateside appearance before the 2011 NBA Draft, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Lee reports that the Washington Wizards -- a team consistently rumored to be heavily interested in the 21-year-old Czech small forward -- will be one of the teams in the gym in New Jersey to see Vesely. The others are the Utah Jazz (No. 3 and No. 12), Cleveland Cavaliers (No. 1 and No. 4) Toronto Raptors (No. 5) and Detroit Pistons (No. 8). The Wizards have the No. 6 pick in the June 23 draft.

Vesely has played for Serbian powerhouse Partizan Belgrade for the past three seasons; he led the side to a domestic league championship last week, with a number of teams in the gym to observe. That game preceded the weekend's adidas Eurocamp in Treviso, Italy.

The absence of the Sacramento Kings (No. 7) is notable, as they are considered a prime candidate for one of the draft's top-tier small forwards. San Diego State's Kawhi Leonard is considered Vesely's rival to be the top small forward taken off the board; Leonard reportedly wowed the Wizards in a previous visit, and will work out for the Kings on Friday.
