What's this about? Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will work out for the Cavaliers, Bobcats, Wizards, Trail Blazers --all top five picks-- and the Nets, who as of now has the #57 pick. Word from Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer is that MKG is traveling to New Jersey out of loyalty: the West Orange native has long been a Nets fan, like his pal, Kyrie Irving.

"The Nets have no first-round pick, but Kidd-Gilchrist is from New Jersey and rooted for the Nets growing up," explained Bonnell.
