Report details how a 'Woj Bomb' kept Beilein at Michigan

  Report details how a 'Woj Bomb' kept Beilein at Michigan Adrian Wojnarowski is the premier NBA news-breaker, but his revelation of the Detroit Pistons’ interest in John Beilein actually led the coach to stay at Michigan. In a fascinating piece by Brendan Quinn of The Athletic, Beilein acknowledged he seriously considered making the leap to NBA until the drama that followed Wojnarowski’s report — a 'Woj Bomb.'“I didn’t want this be one of these things: ‘Hey, the NBA called me.’ I didn’t want it to be that way. I wanted it to be, ‘Hey, let’s talk, let’s listen. If it’s a good match, great. If it’s not, it’s not.’ But then I hated the drama. I hated the attention on myself.

The Sacramento Kings reportedly are giving real consideration to drafting Michael Porter Jr. with the No. 2 overall pick later this month.

Porter was set to work out in Chicago on Friday in front of multiple teams, including the Suns, Kings and Knicks, according to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor. But that workout was cancelled.

USA Today’s Sam Amick says that workout will be rescheduled. Amick notes there’s a “very real chance” the Kings would take Porter with the No. 2 pick.

Porter was a top recruit but only played in parts of three games for Missouri last season. He injured his back in the Tigers’ first game and needed surgery. He recovered in time to play the team’s final two games but was not at 100 percent.

Teams interested in taking him will obviously have questions about his back. Porter has not lost confidence in himself and says he is the best player in the draft.

Michael Porter Jr.'s status is unclear but Nuggets confident about his recovery .
Many teams skipped over the forward due to his long-term medical outlook, but the Nuggets are confident they can get him healthy again.“I have little doubt that we’ll get him right,” Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said Friday, via The Denver Post.
