Jameer Nelson, the consensus national college player of the season, was the featured player at the Suns' first workout of potential prospects for the June draft on Sunday.
Nelson, a 5-foot-11 guard who led St. Joseph's to an undefeated regular season, described his greatest strength as leadership.
"I do whatever I have to do. You get to a point where you have to understand what your team needs at a certain point of a game.
"I think I do that well," he said.
Nelson could be a potential Suns first-round pick, especially if they end up in the lower end of the draft lottery.
The lottery, which determines the order of the draft, will be staged at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Diana Taurasi of the WNBA's Mercury will represent the Suns in New York at the lottery; club president Bryan Colangelo also will attend.
If the lottery goes exactly according to the percentages, the Suns would draft seventh, as they had the sixth-worst record in the league, and expansion Charlotte will get the No. 4 pick.
The Suns could end up anywhere from No. 1 to No. 10. Also working out Sunday were Romain Sato, a 6-5 guard from Xavier, and Ales Chan, a 7-2 center from the Czech Republic who played at Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania.
