Golden State Warriors To Work Out International Prospect

The Golden State Warriors don’t own a draft pick in this year’s upcoming draft, but they’re still working out some of the lesser-known players. Janis Timma falls under that category.

Timma is an international prospect, and he has the right to opt out of the draft. But DraftExpress reports that he could be taken in the second round if he does indeed stay.

In addition to the Warriors, Timma will work out for the Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns. The Indiana Pacers and Milwaukee Bucks also have interest, but there might not be enough time to work him out.

Below is a scouting report of Timma coutesy of DraftExpress:

Timma is among the more impressive physical specimens here. A 6’7 small forward with a strong, 225-pound frame, he certainly looks the part of a NBA prospect relative to many of the players here. An early entry for the 2013 draft, Timma did many of the things he does for Ventspils in Latvia here in Treviso, knocking down a few three-pointers amid bouts of inconsistency and finishing with strength around the rim. An aggressive player with some creativity, Timma is a player some teams like, and he could factor into someone’s plans in the second round if he leaves his name in the draft.

The general gist: He has an NBA-ready body, but his actual skills still need some fine-tuning.
