Former Arizona Wildcat guard Kyle Fogg is working out for the Phoenix Suns today, kicking off a West Coast swing he hopes will land him a summer league job if not a selection in the NBA Draft.

The Suns no longer comment on pre-draft workouts, or invite media in for any of them, but Fogg said this week he is planning to work out for Phoenix today, then visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. Fogg will have a short stopover in his homeland of Southern California before meeting the Kings for a workout on Monday.

(Updated: Fogg posted on Twitter that the workout went well and that he liked Suns coach Alvin Gentry.)

Fogg has already auditioned for the Houston Rockets and, later this month, Fogg said he planned to work out for Toronto, which is the reason he applied for a passport.

Of course, Fogg could be using that passport if he plays overseas next season, though he’s making a push for NBA teams to look at him.

“It’s great,” Fogg said of his schedule. “I’m definitely anxious. I want it to come fast but at the same time I need to work on my game.”

The Suns looked at big men during their first workout on Tuesday.
