Through the 2013 NBA Draft on June 27, former Florida Gators forward Erik Murphy, the team’s leading three-point shooter last season (.453), will be keeping you up-to-date on his Path to the Draft via a weekly blog entry here on OGGOA.
Murphy got in touch with OGGOA on Friday to discuss three more workouts he participated in over the last week. He has at least five more to go, possibly more, before the process concludes next week.
Picking back up from last time I checked in, last Friday I had a workout with the Cleveland Cavaliers. It followed the same format that most of the others did, but it was definitely the hardest one due to the length, intensity and the type of drills they had us running. The focus was mostly on skill work with some shooting at the end. What stood out the most from Cleveland was that it was the nicest facility I have been in so far.
After the workout, I met with Žydrūnas Ilgauskas – the Cavs’ assistant general manager – and other members of the front office. It was a good experience all-around; I definitely had a good experience there.
I got back to Las Vegas, NV, later on Friday and took Saturday off. [Editor’s Note: Murphy is training with Impact Basketball in Las Vegas.]
On Sunday and Monday, I did some light workouts, nothing too strenuous, because I found out I was flying to Portland, OR, Monday night for a workout with the Portland Trailblazers that was added to my schedule for Tuesday.
