The Charlotte Hornets will host their third NBA draft workout on Monday, and it will include two players that could be on the team’s radar for the 11th overall pick:

Here is the full list of players:

  • Bryce Alford - UCLA
  • Terrance Ferguson - Adelaide 36ers (pro team in Australia)
  • Donovan Mitchell - Louisville
  • Cameron Oliver - Nevada
  • Devin Robinson - Florida
  • Tai Webster - Nebraska

Mitchell is undoubtedly the standout prospect of the group, as many mock drafts have him pegged as a late lottery pick. A 6-3 combo guard with a 6’10 wingspan, he is already a strong defense player, and while his offensive game is still developing, he has shown significant growth on that end, averaging 15.6 points per game his sophomore season after averaging just 7.4 as a freshman.

Mitchell spoke with Charlotte radio station WFNZ this past weekend, making his case for why he would be a good fit for the Hornets. On his potential fit with Kemba Walker, Mitchell stated:

Ferguson, who is from Tulsa, played professionally in Australia last season. While his playing time was limited, he is viewed by many NBA scouts as a potential “3-and-D” player. With good shooting mechanics and athleticism, he’s an intriguing player, but one projected to go in the mid-to-late first round, not the lottery. If the Hornets really like him, they could always reach, but he could end up being an option if they chose to trade down.

With Mitchell marking the first legitimate lottery pick working out for Charlotte, look for others projected to go at or around the 11th pick to workout for the Hornets later in the week.
