The Charlotte Hornets announced the names of players that will participate in their second NBA Draft workout on Saturday. Leading the group is Villanova’s Mikal Bridges:

Much like the previous group, tomorrow’s workout features exclusively upperclassmen, with almost all seniors aside from Bridges. Along with Bridges, UNC’s Theo Pinson and Virginia’s Isaiah Wilkins enter as notable names for ACC hoops fans.
