Monday's group include more well-known shooters and slammers as the team does its due-diligence.

Only one of these two Harrisons worked out with the Hornets on Monday. But which one?

The Charlotte Hornets continue to put in work as they analyze all potential avenues before the NBA Draft. On Monday, the team brought in Jerian Grant, R.J. Hunter, Larry Nance Jr., Andrew Harrison (fun story — twin brother Aaron Harrison was originally scheduled to take part in the workout according to the Hornets' Twitter feed, but the twins made a last-second switch, presumably to see if anyone would notice), Branden Dawson and Jordan Downing.

This group includes more household names than last week's, including Grant — who many local fans are familiar with thanks to his ACC ties — and Hunter — who, along with his father, became fan favorites in the NCAA Tournament.

But players like Dawson — who has the athleticism the Hornets have loved in recent drafts — and Downing — a sharpshooter from nearby Presbyterian College (go Fighting Blue Hose!) should not be overlooked and could become useful late first round or second round draft picks for the Hornets should they choose to go that route.

Then there is Nance Jr. Older fans will most likely know him as the son of former NBA player Larry Nance. Younger fans will know him as the guy from Wyoming with so many great dunks that Campus Insider made a Top Five countdown of his best throwdowns, which includes an impression of the Nike Michael Jordan logo (you know, this one).
