Wenyen Gabriel is getting a shot to show the Sacramento Kings what he can do with just over a week remaining before he decides to remain in the NBA Draft or return to Kentucky. The Kings announced that Gabriel will work out for them on Monday.
Gabriel has already worked out for the Utah Jazz in this pre-draft process.
Gabriel is looking to see where his draft stock lies after a season in which he averaged 6.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. He shot 44 percent from the field, coming in just under 40 percent from deep.
Gabriel’s standout performance that propelled him to national attention was his seven 3-point performance against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Tournament.
Aside from that, he didn’t really have a year that NBA scouts would take note of. He’s not listed on any major mock drafts, big boards or prospect lists, and it’d take some kind of performance at these workouts to land on a team’s draft board.
If Gabriel were to somehow land with the Kings, he would reunite with former teammate De’Aaron Fox. The Kings also have former UK players Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein.
