The Charlotte Hornets are hosting their second workout of the weekend on Sunday, and this one features a player that could be in play in the lottery.

The full list of participants:

  • Bruno Fernando, Center, Maryland
  • Shizz Alston Jr., Guard, Temple
  • Keyshawn Woods, Guard, Ohio State
  • Lamar Stevens, Forward, Penn State
  • Justin Simon, Guard, St. John’s
  • Raasean Davis, Forward, NC Central

The big name on this list is Bruno Fernando, but it’s hard to say where the Hornets would target him. NBA Draft Net has the Hornets selecting Fernando at twelfth overall, while ESPN has him going two picks ahead of the Hornets in the second round. Meanwhile, Tankathon has him going somewhere in the middle.

Fernando is a physically imposing center with a raw but developing offensive game. He’s a terrific rebounder. He could provide some depth to the Hornets front line, but he may be a reach at twelfth overall.
