Fred VanVleet Makes A Pit Stop In Rockford


The NBA will soon turn the page from the finals to the draft. That will be next week and Fred VanVleet could be selected.

The Rockford native was back home this morning squeezing in a workout into his busy schedule at the new UW-Health sports factory downtown.VanVleet worked out for the Magic yesterday, and for the Grizzlies this past Wednesday. All of the traveling is a grind, but he’s taking some good advice about trying to enjoy the journey.

“Enjoy the process,” says VanVleet. “For me I’m not a hyped up McDonald’s All-American to be a top five, top ten pick, so I’ve got to take whatever comes my way. I may get picked and I may not get picked. But that doesn’t mean I’m not an NBA player. I feel strongly that I am and I’m going to make it there one way or another.”

Next week he’ll workout for the Bulls, the Raptors, the Thunder and the Jazz.
