Allen and Karnowski headline the list of prospects.

NCAA Basketball: Final Four Championship Game-Gonzaga vs North Carolina Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets will conduct their first day of NBA draft workouts today, per an announcement from the team:

Headlining this group is Kadeem Allen, a 6’3 guard from Arizona who attended New Hanover High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. Allen shot 42.7 percent from the 3-point line last season, and was named to the All-Pac-12 Second Team and Defensive team.

Another notable attendee is Przemek Karnowski, a 7-1 center from Gonzaga. One of the more recognizable figures from the NCAA tournament, Karnowski was one of the key figures in Gonzaga’s NCAA Championship runner-up season.

Other players attending include:

  • Austin Arians
  • V.J. Beachem
  • Jack Gibbs
  • Mangok Mathiang

None of these players are expected to go at or around the 11th pick, and are projected as late first or second round prospects. But among the group, both Adams and Arians were strong 3-point shooters, and Gibbs had a highly productive offensive season as a point guard. Given this is just day one, expect lottery bound players to show up as the draft workouts continue.
