The Charlotte Hornets announced the participants for their second round of pre-draft workouts.

All six of the participants in Wednesday’s workout are seniors. They are:

  • Donta Hall, Forward, Alabama
  • Ahmed Hill, Guard, Virginia Tech
  • Markis McDuffie, Forward, Witchita State
  • Nick Perkins, Forward, Buffalo
  • Kerwin Roach Jr., Guard, Texas
  • Kenny Williams, Guard, UNC

Much like the first workout, this one features players that are more likely to be camp and summer league targets. Only Kerwin Roach shows up in mock drafts, and that’s at the very tail end if he appears at all.

The common thread among Wednesday’s participants is outside shooting ability. Donta Hall is the only one without any promising 3-point shooting numbers. The Hornets struggled in that area at times this past season, and it’s clear the front office is looking to rectify that going into next season.

The more highly touted prospects will likely start their workout tours once the draft order is set at the lottery next Tuesday. That’s when we’ll get a better idea about who the Hornets are looking at and who could end up in Charlotte next season.
