With Quincy Miller's draft stock falling, the Baylor freshman no longer has much of a floor for where he could be selected in the 2012 NBA Draft. One team he has been linked too is the Golden State Warriors, who have a second first-round pick at No. 30 overall, which could put them in a position to roll the dice on a boom/bust prospect like Miller.
That could make Miller's workout with Golden State on Saturday one of the most important days in his young basketball career:

While teams tend to dismiss the importance of pre-draft workouts, it's a far more recent bit of data than college basketball games that have happened 3-6 months ago, and one dominant performance in person can overcome shaky game tape.
Miller, with his combination of size, athleticism and shooting ability at 6'10 220, certainly passes the eye test. But the most important test for him could come with Golden State's team doctors, as he needs to prove that he's recovered from an ACL injury he suffered during his senior season of high school that clearly affected him at Baylor.
