Travis Diener's NBA Draft Preparation

The NBA draft is just a few days away, and Marquette graduate Travis Diener is working hard to secure a job in the league. Earlier today, ESPN.com launched a series which will track Travis' workouts and pre-draft preparation - - it should run right up through the draft.

Diener has helped his draft stock dramatically in the last few weeks, highlighted by a strong performance in the Chicago pre-draft camp. Per the site today, he's already completed individual workouts with New York, New Jersey, the Lakers, Clippers, Warriors, Kings, Portland, Utah, and Milwaukee.

There has to be a place on an NBA roster for Travis Diener. Perhaps the Bucks remember other gaffes with Wisconsin natives (such as choosing Steve Henson over Tony Smith, and passing on Terry Porter) and give TD a shot.
