Givony reports that Darius Garland will conduct a last-minute workout with the New York Knicks and is a "serious consideration" to go third overall.

The 2019 NBA Draft is set to take place Thursday, and the C's now own three first-round picks: Nos.

The top three picks may not be as set in stone as we've been led to believe over the course of the past month, at least not according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Garland, who averaged 16.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game prior to suffering a meniscus injury, recently declared himself the best guard in the draft.

As ESPN's Malika Andrews reports, the Pelicans now hold the No. 4 pick, which they acquired from the Lakers, and are said to be receiving significant interest in it. Join the King James Gospel team! It could package a couple of those to get up to No. 4 to take Garland.

Moore was later transported to the hospital where he underwent surgery to remove the bullet from his head, WPLG Local 10 reported. C Glizzy was affiliated with XXXTentacion , looking up to the rapper and posting several videos of them dancing together.

So considering that, if the Bulls do eventually trade up to number four and potentially give New Orleans a quality veteran player in exchange or throw in meaningful future picks, Cleveland would likely have a much clearer route to go with the fifth pick.

Boston has the No. 14, 22 and 51 picks in this year's draft.

"I humbly say this, I think I'm the best (guard) in the draft", Garland told ESPN.

We've often emphasized how those three prospects, who it seems all could be considered by the Pelicans (along with Garland even, h/t Tansey) if they don't choose to trade with the Bulls, could greatly help the Cleveland Cavaliers on both ends in the coming years. Despite that fact, he's still being projected as a top pick, as his upside is evident. National Basketball Association teams clearly have been impressed with him though, so it seems like many might be willing to take a chance.
