With the NBA Draft fast approaching, former Hoosier guard Yogi Ferrell will begin making the rounds to workouts with NBA teams looking to impress for either a potential late second-round selection or a spot on a team's Summer League squad.
Jeff Goodman of ESPN released Ferrell's workout schedule to-date earlier this week:
Yogi Ferrell workout sched:LAL (5-16), LAC (18), Suns (20), Utah (22), Chi (23), Atl (25), Mavs (26), Det (31), Wiz (6-2), Nets (8), NY (10)— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) May 9, 2016
Of the team's listed, Atlanta, Brooklyn and Utah all have picks in the final seven selections of the draft, which would be the most likely target for Ferrell to be selected.
Interestingly, the Knicks, who currently do not have a second round pick, may be looking to acquire a pick later in the draft with Ferrell as a potential target.

The Knicks could simply be doing their due diligence on prospects, but with a team low on talent and looking for cheap upgrades, Ferrell could be an option.
Ferrell remains an alternate for the Draft Combine, which started on Wednesday. The NBA Draft is June 23.
