Last week we let you know that former Villanova Wildcats sharpshooter Corey Stokes was working out at the IMG Academy in Florida in preparation for the NBA Draft, and now it's been released that Stokes will be working out for the Boston Celtics on June 20th.
According to OpposingViews.com, Corey Stokes is being considered as a potential pick for the Celtics, who have the 55th overall pick in the 2nd round.
Stokes has an amazing shot, the release is soft and the form consistent. Stokes has NBA three point range already and has the ability to maintain his accuracy even when in motion. He isn't a great ball handler but he has good athleticism and is strong and with a little work will be dangerous driving to the basket. Defensively, Stokes is fundamental and could be a good defender in time. He is also a good rebounder at his position.
The 2011 NBA Draft is on June 23rd, 2011, so Stokes will have great chance to impress in the days leading up to the draft.
