Minnesota Draft Workout Will Include Players Projected In First Round Of NBA Mock Drafts

The Minneapolis NBA Draft workout next weekend (preliminary details here) hosted by the Minnesota Timberwolves will feature a smattering of first round talent expected to be taken around the time the Wolves come on the clock with the 20th overall pick in this year's draft. 

The Wolves, along with at least 22 other NBA teams, will host the two-day affair on May 23 and 24 to get a better look at the prospects following the official NBA Draft combine. According to Jonathan Givony of the always excellent Draft Express, 20 of the 24 participants expected to converge on Minneapolis next weekend have been confirmed.

The point guards expected to be in attendance include Shelvin Mack (Butler Bulldogs), Kalin Lucas (Michigan State Spartans), Diante Garrett (Iowa State Cyclones), Darius Morris (Michigan Wolverines), Josh Selby (Kansas Jayhawks), Reggie Jackson (Boston College Eagles).

Wing prospects include Malcolm Lee (UCLA Bruins), Marshon Brooks (Providence Friars), Travis Leslie (Georgia Bulldogs), Justin Holiday (Washington Huskies), Jereme Richmond (Illinois Fighting Illini), Tyler Honeycutt (UCLA Bruins) and Chandler Parsons (Florida Gators).

As far as bigs are concerned, Keith Benson (Oakland (MI) Golden Grizzlies), Jamie Skeen (VCU Rams), Michael Dunigan (former Oregon Ducks big man who played in Europe this past season), Jordan Williams (Maryland Terrapins), Markieff Morris (Kansas Jayhawks), JaJuan Johnson (Purdue Boilermakers) and Nikola Vucevic (USC Trojans) are all expected to be in attendance.

The pre-draft workout doesn't contain the most high-profile of NBA prospects, but quite a few future NBA players will be in the Wolves' backyard next weekend with four additional spots still left to be determined.
