Ryan McDonough has done extensive background research on Shabazz Muhammad.

“He checked out very well,” McDonough said. “I think a lot of the perception of Shabazz is unfair based on the information we’ve gathered.

“I think he’s one of hardest workers in the draft.”

Muhammad worked out for the Suns on Wednesday, and was joined by Victor Oladipo and Ben McLemore.

The Suns have the fifth overall pick in the draft.

“This was a really talented group,” McDonough said. “We had a bunch of guys in the gym who I think will end up in the lottery.”
