Peanut butter and jelly just can’t stay away from each other, apparently.
Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams were both visiting the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. Each posted pictures of their workout on Instagram.
Williams announced on Friday morning that he would be keeping his name in the 2019 NBA Draft after receiving feedback from teams during the NBA Combine. He’s a projected first round pick by most analysts, usually coming off of the board somewhere between picks 20-30 in mock drafts.
He earned first-team All-American honors last season, while taking home his second straight SEC player of the year trophy. Williams was also a finalist for the national player of the year.
Schofield’s projection is a little more scattered. The 6-6, 240 pound shooting guard is being projected anywhere from the late first round to the late second round. It will be interesting to see how the NBA views his fit in the league — he’s not your typical guard, but he’s not exactly your typical wing or post player either.
Williams and Schofield were the two leading scorers for Tennessee last season, averaging 18.8 and 16.5 points per game, respectively.
As for the Warriors, they hold picks No. 28 and 58 in next month’s draft. They are going through the draft process this year once again waiting to see who they will face in their fifth consecutive NBA Finals.
Tennessee point guard Jordan Bone has also declared, but has yet to make his final decision just yet. He has until May 29th to opt to return to school, or to keep his name in the draft. Center Kyle Alexander also has some NBA interest and has already worked out with the Atlanta Hawks, despite missing out on a combine invite.
The NBA Draft will be held on June 20th. For now, mark down the Warriors as a potential team of interest when it comes to Admiral and Grant.
