Ricky Ledo Discusses Wide Draft Range
Ricky Ledo has worked out for the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies, Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks among others.
Because Ledo was ineligible during his lone season at Providence, he understands that these workouts will make or break him on draft night.
“That’s everything at this point because they don’t have film on me since I didn’t play in college last year,” Ledo said. “It’s everything. I have to show that I belong. I have to show what type of person that I am. Overall, I have to show that I’m good enough to play at the next level and that I am one of the top guys in the draft.
“It’s starting to hit me that my dream is about to come true, so I’m definitely getting a little bit nervous. It’s been a good experience. The traveling gets to you a little bit, but you’re happy to do it because you’re showcasing what you can do and interviewing for your future job. But it does get tiring, just the flights all across the country and things like that.”
When asked to identify which of his workouts went the best, Ledo doesn’t hesitate.
“I had a really good workout for the New York Knicks,” Ledo said. “I worked out really well for them. I would say that was my favorite workout. Overall, it was a really good workout.”
Because there are a lot of questions surrounding Ledo, he has one of the widest ranges of any player in the draft. He could go as high as the teens or as a low as the 40s, depending on what teams think of him. Ledo admits that even he doesn’t have a sense of where he’ll go on draft night.
“Kind of, but not really,” Ledo said with a laugh. “I’ve been speaking with my agent [Seth Cohen] and he’s been telling me that I could go mid-first to late-first to really-early second. I could go anywhere in that range.”
