LAS VEGAS - For an NBA prospect like Isaiah Whitehead, every opportunity to improve his draft stock has to be taken very seriously. That's why the Seton Hall guard felt a little nervous before Tuesday's pro day at Impact Sports Academy in Las Vegas.
More than 120 scouts and front office executives from all 30 teams were on hand to watch the workout, and after going through some shooting and ball-handling drills and playing some 3-on-3 games, Whitehead said he was pleased with his performance, even if it took him a while to settle down.
"I don't care who you are, if you're coming in and playing in front of every scout and GM in the NBA, you're going to have some nerves," Whitehead said. "I think I was solid. I felt some [nerves] last night, but once I got here and got loose and made some shots, I got comfortable. I wasn't great and I wasn't bad. I think it was a solid day."
