Hawks workout Gobert, Plumlee, and others before draft.

New, comments

The names of players the Atlanta Hawks are working out are not being released to the media this year, but as we move closer to the draft, names have surfaced through reports and players' twitter accounts.

Today Rudy Gobert, the 19 year-old 7'2" French center, participated in a pre-draft workout with the Hawks and tweeted out a photo of his workout shirt.

With the Hawks not releasing the names of workout participants this year, we are reliant on players and agents, as well as well placed sources, to discover who is working out and when. Earlier in the week, Nubyjas Wilborn reported that Mason Plumlee (Duke; Power Forward), Jeff Withey (Kansas; Center), and a few other big men had worked out with the Hawks.

Nubyjas told me that he spoke briefly with Plumlee who said that he would be back for a workout with the Hawks again once the NBA Finals were over so Mike Budenholzer can be in attendance.

Other players that have stated on twitter, have had their agents state their participation in a workout, or have been reported to workout (including potential first rounders, second rounders, and undrafted free agents) with the Hawks include:

Jamaal Franklin (San Diego State; Shooting Guard/Small Forward)***

Kerron Johnson (Belmont University; Point Guard)

Frank Gaines, Jr. (IPFW; Point Guard)

***Franklin's visit reported by Andy Katz and has been unconfirmed as to whether he has been to Atlanta yet***
