Syracuse's Dion Waiters shuts down predraft workouts, may have promise

Multiple outlets are reporting that Syracuse guard Dion Waiters has shut down all predraft workouts and interviews, which usually happens when a prospect has a promise from a team to take him.

Waiters is a fast-rising prospect whom many see as perhaps the best scorer in the class, and Alex Kennedy of reports that league sources speculate that the Toronto Raptors have given Waiters a promise at No. 8. (Of course, on Wednesday there was a report that Toronto is shopping that pick.)

Chad Ford of seconds the Raptors and adds two other possibilities:

The Trail Blazers have the sixth and 11th overall picks, while the Suns are at No. 13.
