adidas Nation in Vegas

LAS VEGAS- The adidas Nation workout was the highlight of the day on Saturday. Some high level players were on the court but none were as impressive as 2011 wing prospect LeBryan Nash.
No one was keeping stats but there is no doubt that Nash was far and away the high scorer during the scrimmage portion of the practice. He was dialed in from beyond the line, and his midrange game was unguardable. Nash has a high-level physique, bouncy athleticism, and a one-on-one game that looks like Lance Stephenson at his best.
Dominique Ferguson is maturing into a highly-skilled four man. His three-point shot was true throughout workout, and he is putting on positive weight. He was the top rebounder during the scrimmage.
Tristan Thompson stood out in the drill portion of the practice. His top-notch work ethic is producing results as he continues to improve physically and skill wise.
Nick Johnson has as smooth a shooting stroke as anyone in the 2011 class.
Marquis Teague was the most impressive point guard at the workout. His dribbling skills are unmatched on the circuit, and he has the athleticism to continually get to the rim. Throw in his reliable jumper and you have a guy that is nearly unstoppable.
The most impressive passer in the workout was Anthony Wroten Jr. Although he over-passed in the lane, his vision up the court was refreshing considering the tendency for guards to over-dribble in events like this.
Trey Zeigler has an impressive first step.
Jordan Price is a big bodied wing out of the 2012 class who didn't look a bit out of place during the event. Along with his physicality, he has quite a high skill level.
Ray McCallum has all the markings of a coach's son when he is running the point. And over the past year, he has developed a great deal physically.
The other participants in the workout were Trae Golden, Jordan McRae, Justin Martin, Joshua Hairston, Josh Smith, Myck Kabongo, Kevin Ware, Rodney Hood, Cody Zeller, Rakeem Christmas and Marshall Plumlee.
