Dominique Hawkins is getting a chance to showcase himself to NBA teams.

According to KSTV, Hawkins will work out for both the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Lakers this week.

Hawkins is also drawing interest from NFL and overseas pro basketball teams. He would obviously love to play in the NBA, even if it looks like a longshot at this point.

The Richmond, Kentucky native did play a major role in getting the Cats to an SEC Championship, a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and an Elite Eight finish. Hawkins has been working out this offseason with De'Aaron Fox in California in hopes of scoring a professional contract next season, wherever it may be.

I think there’s a decent chance Hawkins gets an invite to an NBA training camp and may be able to play in the D-League if he wants, but he probably would take a bigger-money offer to play overseas.
