The Charlotte Hornets announced who will attend their fourth NBA draft workout on Tuesday:

And the list:

  • Jaron Blossomgame - Clemson
  • Antonius Cleveland - Southeast Missouri State
  • P.J. Dozier - South Carolina
  • Avry Holmes - Clemson
  • Justin Patton - Creighton
  • Quinton Stephens - Georgia Tech

The standout among the group is Patton, who is projected as a mid-to-late first round pick. The 20 year old stands 7’0 feet, and played one season at Creighton (but did redshirt, hence his age) where he averaged 12.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. An athletic forward, he has a bit of shooting range as well, as he knocked down 57.1 percent of his 3-point attempts. The catch, of course, is that he attempted just 0.4 a game, but knocking down the occasional 3-pointer at this stage is something to build off of.

Among the others, Dozier and Blossomgame are projected to be second round picks. Dozier is a sophomore shooting guard that averaged 13.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game, while Blossomgame is a senior forward that averaged 17.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

As always, share your thoughts on the group in the comments.
