A number of teams are expected to skip the live workout day for prospects ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post.
Pre-draft workouts this year will take place in a designated city, with scouts allowed to watch the workouts in person.
1-on-1 interviews are expected to be granted during the event, but are not guaranteed.
Certain teams believe that the risk of COVID-19 outweigh the rewards of insight gleaned from the workout, with executives believing that the best way to watch a prospect is during college practices.
“Doing your own homework and own background checks are more important,” one executive told Berman.
