The 2015 NBA Draft is only weeks away, and NBA teams are holding workouts evaluating prospects and adjusting their draft boards. Karl-Anthony Towns is expected to be taken first and will only interview with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers. If Minnesota doesn’t take him at No. 1, the Lakers will be free to draft him at No. 2.
In addition, it has been reported Towns also won’t workout for teams. However, Towns was involved in a private one in Los Angeles Monday morning along with Kentucky teammate Willie Cauley-Stein and Ohio State guard D’Angelo Russell. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express was on hand and recording video of Cauley-Stein taking jump shots and Towns throwing down an impressive dunk:

The Lakers meanwhile continued to hold their own workouts in El Segundo. With three picks in the upcoming draft, the team will keep bringing in a wide range of players. The top targets are expected to come in during a later date.
