2012 NBA Draft: Damian Lillard Rains Jumpers In A Pre-Draft Workout For Kings (Video)

As the 2012 NBA Draft inches closer, Weber State point guard Damian Lillard is emerging as one of the hottest names in the class. Lillard burst onto NBA radars as a senior this past season, and he's been impressing even more in pre-draft workouts. He recently visited the Sacramento Kings, where he displayed his plus-athleticism and ability to shoot the rock.

Here's some footage from the workout:

The Kings hold the No. 5 pick in the draft, which is conceivably the highest Lillard could go. Most projections have the point guard going between No. 6 and No. 11, with the Portland Trail Blazers holding each of those selections.

Lillard is still locked in a battle with North Carolina sophomore Kendall Marshall to be the first point guard off the board, but early indications seem to be pointing Lillard's way.
