Hornets host two potential lottery picks as part of eighth pre-draft workout

Two ACC products that could be in play at the twelfth pick headline this group.

NCAA Basketball: Virginia Tech at North Carolina Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets are hosting their eighth pre-draft workout on Friday, and it’s probably the most interesting cast yet.

The players:

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Guard, Virginia Tech
  • Devontae Cacok, Forward, UNC Wilmington
  • Tyler Cook, Forward, Iowa
  • Jordan Davis, Guard, Northern Colorado
  • Nassir Little, Forward, UNC
  • Matt Morgan, Guard, Cornell

Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Nassir Little are the headliners of this group; both are in play at the Hornets’ twelfth overall selection. You can expect to see more in depth scouting reports of these players at later dates.

Alexander-Walker is the cousin of former Hornet-for-five-minutes Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (lots of hyphens here). He’s a combo guard with a strong all around game, not unlike his cousin.

Little was a top recruit going into his freshman season at UNC, but he struggled in his time there under Roy Williams. Teams will be enticed by his physical tools and potential.

Here’s a fun poll question about the two big names in this group.


If you had to pick one of these two players with the twelfth overall pick, who would you choose?
