NBA teams finally got the opportunity the see potential draftees up close and personal this week with the kick off of draft workout season.
The NBA Pre-Draft Camp in Chicago, as well as workouts earlier in the week in Vegas, offered early insight into where player stocks are headed.
Chicago serves as the "official weigh-in" for the draft as players are measured without shoes and tested for their vertical leap, sprint speed and agility.
In addition, the camp features some light full and half court skill drills as well as small-sided competition (3-on-3 and smaller)
It's hard to impress a team that never sees you play, so the absence of players like Quincy Pondexter and Daniel Orton was a bit perplexing.
However, plenty of players showed up, and a few surprised attending scouts and GMs.
Here are five players who have already improved their draft status by virtue of their excellent performances in Chicago and Vegas.
