Clippers to host pre-draft workout Monday, Assistant GM Trent Redden to answer fans’ questions on social media

by Caden Kinard

For teams that hold picks in this month’s draft, the preparation process is painstakingly meticulous, searching through and digesting as much information as possible on the current crop of prospects. With just over two weeks remaining before the draft, teams are essentially cramming for a final — a high stakes, highly publicized test. Since last year’s draft, the Clippers have scoured the globe doing their homework on potential draftees, but on Monday they’ll be studying at home.

On June 4, the Clippers will host their first pre-draft workout open to the media, bringing in players to run through drills and play in game-like scenarios under the watchful eye of the team’s front office and coaching staff. Following the workout, the players, President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank, and Assistant General Manager Trent Redden will be made available to attending media.

Fans at home will have a unique opportunity to participate in the media session. Redden has invited fans to send draft and Clipper-related questions under the hashtag #AskTrent by replying to any Clippers social media post or visiting

For those unfamiliar with Redden, he is entering his second year with the Clippers after 11 years with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He joined Cleveland in 2006, rising from an internship position to Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations, playing a crucial role in the Cavaliers 2016 championship. He has a reputation for being a shrewd front office operator, with a keen eye for exceptional talent.
