Only college players expected to attend National Basketball Association draft

A pro day workout for Porter in Chicago was scheduled for Friday where teams such as the Kings could not only get a look at his skills, but also get an update on his back.

That's why for the first time in recent years, the invitations to the National Basketball Association draft green room possibly will not include a non-collegiate player, as ESPN reports. While he reportedly felt only about 50 percent physically, he had an impressive showing, according to multiple teams in attendance, as he shot the ball exceptionally well.

Here's NBC Sports Boston's Mock Draft 3.0. Porter had to cancel an initial workout with hip spasms.

Porter ceased all basketball activity after the season, focusing his efforts on rehab, sources told ESPN, after losing strength in his left leg in particular because of the injury. He could go as high as No. 2, but if these constant injuries become a problem them that could scare a lot of teams away from him.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said US and North Korean officials would hold working-level talks on Monday. The United States will move to tighten the punishing measures if diplomacy fails, he added.

Porter has made Chicago his home base for his pre-draft workout process because his agency is based here.

The Knicks, along with the Kings and several other teams, were planning on attending.

The Kings, like most teams, want to continue to review Porter's medical records before selecting him.

The Sacramento Kings haven't been to the National Basketball Association playoffs since 2006 and have struggled to build through the draft during what has been a decade of futility.
