Former Gophers guard Payton Willis has had a busy week, working out for the Timberwolves and Grizzlies. He had workouts for the Warriors and Hawks in May, hoping that some NBA front office is willing to take a chance.

Our Darren ‘Doogie’ Wolfson caught up with Willis, via Zoom, to hear about the pre-draft process, how his workout with the Timberwolves went, and what he feels about the Gophers’ future.

Willis was second on the Gophers in scoring at 16.1 points per game during the regular season. He also led the Big Ten in three-point efficiency at 43.2 percent.

Whether in the NBA, G-League, or overseas, wherever Willis lands, his elite shot-making from long range should translate.

The NBA Draft is June 23.
