Houston works out a few players; Draft thoughts

  • By Kyle Kappe, Day 1, 2025


HOUSTON - With the 4th pick in the draft, Houston has had the luxury of being able to choose from pretty much everyone, especially with the likely moves ahead of them already being announced, sort of. Even though they worked out Lane and Walcutt, the chances of them landing either of the two were highly unlikely. Teams have inquired about the availability of the #4 pick and no offer has really tempted GM Kappe to punt on the pick, though he has never quite ruled it out. Kappe has also made it known that for the right move into a second pick in the first, he is willing to trade future firsts to do so, but generally thought to only be into the top 8 or so.

Players worked out include:
Lane
Walcutt
Price
Diouf
McConnell
Acosta
Bell
Henriquez
Diop
Lockhart
Fox
Murray
Nikos
McDyess
Kiris
Whiting
Morrison
Howard
Spencer
Baptiste
Holland
Andaya

There are rumors to have been more, but for the interest of potential second rounds, the info has been limited in being released. What Houston does with their 2 seconds, remains a mystery.
