Dominique Hawkins is getting a chance to showcase himself to NBA teams.
According to his high school coach, Dominique Hawkins is set to work out with the Pacers and Lakers next week. #BBN— KSTV (@KSTV_Sports) May 20, 2017
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.
