Apparently the NBA workout season is upon us. I found this little news blurb about Siena guard Kenny Hasbrouck, a 6′-3″ Senior combo guard:
Siena senior Kenny Hasbrouck’s taken another step toward his goal of getting to the NBA .
The MAAC player of the year and all-american honorable mention has his first NBA workout set. He’ll get a look from the Oklahoma City Thunder on May 15th, his first scheduled nba date.
Hasbrouck says he’ll work for the Knicks as well, but the date isn’t set yet.
Ordinally, MAAC players would also be thinking about playing overseas. While that could happen for Kenny, it not his plan right yet. He’s instructed his agent only to talk about NBA deals right now. Europe on Hasbrouck’s backburner until all his NBA options are exhausted
I profess I don’t know a thing about Hasbrouck. Siena made the tournament this season, but I didn’t get a chance to see them play. He seems to be somewhat of a defensive pest based on his stats. He’s #6 in total steals and in steals/40. His shooting stats are sort of underwhelming (especially his 66% from the line) but he started all 129 games in his four years at Siena. Hasbrouck is another guy from the D.C. area.
As word of these workouts begin to trickle in, we will begin to see the kinds of players, and the positions Presti seems to be interested in addressing.
