Projected No. 1 draft pick Anthony Edwards to have his NBA Pro Day televised live
One of the best talents to come out of the SEC in recent memory, Georgia star Anthony Edwards will have his pro day televised live tonight.
ESPN2 will broadcast the event from Los Angeles, and coach Tom Crean will be on hand with an interview. All of the action is set for 8 p.m. ET tonight.
Edwards, the projected No. 1 overall pick in next month’s NBA Draft, will conduct the workout from the Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif, Georgia announced. ESPN college basketball analysts Jay Bilas and Dalen Cuff will serve as commentators, with ESPN draft analyst Mike Schmitz on site in California.
The hourlong telecast tonight will also feature a workout by Tyrese Maxey, who played at Kentucky and is projected as the No. 12 pick in the draft by ESPN.
Bilas praised Edwards last year in a game against Michigan State in Maui.
Anthony Edwards…damn. He’s got 32 points, and brought Georgia back in it after being down 28 points.

Edwards could become Georgia highest-ever NBA pick. Dominique Wilkins was chosen with the No. 3 overall selection of the 1982 NBA Draft. Edwards was the nation’s top-scoring freshman last season, averaging 19.1 ppg for the Bulldogs. He scored 610 points, the seventh-best single-season tally in UGA history and the 10th-best effort every by an SEC freshman.
