2012 NBA Draft: Syracuse's Dion Waiters Stops Pre-Draft Workouts, Which Team Made Him A Promise?

Former Syracuse Orange guard Dion Waiters has stopped his pre-draft workouts ahead of the 2012 NBA Draft (via Pro Basketball Talk).

Waiters is a projected first-round pick in the draft. He abruptly shut down his workouts on Thursday after initially meeting with teams at the NBA Draft combine in Chicago. The fact that he is done working out for teams means that a team has made him a promise. It is uncertain which team made the offer, but it was apparently not the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors have the No. 8 pick left in the draft but Waiters agent reportedly told Toronto general manager Bryan Colangelo that his client has a promise with another team (via Pro Basketball Talk). Another rumor had Waiters linked to the Phoenix Suns at the No. 13 spot.

Waiters had 12.6 points and 1.8 steals in 24.1 minutes per game last season for Syracuse and was named the Big East's Sixth Man of the Year.
