Great Britain international Matthew Bryan-Amaning has undergone another tranche of work-outs this weekend ahead of the forthcoming NBA Draft.

The London-born forward faces a gruelling cross-continental trip to showcase his skills with a session at the Sacramento Kings before flying to Canada to meet with the evaluations staff of the Toronto Raptors.

Amaning: NBA-bound?

Bryan-Amaning has been projected as a possible late second-round choice when the annual Draft takes place on June 23 in Newark, following an impressive stint at the University of Washington.

Last month, he participated in a large camp in Minnesota, watched by representatives of 28 NBA teams.

He has also held private work-outs with the San Antonio Spurs, Portland Trailblazers and New York Knicks in a bid to make his case for selection.

“There’s been a lot of positive feedback,” the Brit told “Coming out of college, I did a lot of back to the basket stuff and just being able to show that I have a little bit more of a skill set than teams thought I had, it’s opened a few eyes.”

Despite his stated reluctance to confirm his plans until after the draft, the 23-year-old is expected to be named in Chris Finch’s provisional 18-man squad for GB’s Eurobasket campaign later this summer, after making his full international debut last year.
