Villanova shooting guard Josh Hart has a workout scheduled with the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday according to a report by SNY.tv's Adam Zagoria.

Zagoria reported on Monday that Kentucky's Isaiah Briscoe would also be working out for the Hawks on Tuesday. Both players put their names into the draft pool but have not made a decision on whether they will be staying in or returning to school. Hart told Zagoria that he would make a decision on Wednesday which is the deadline for prospects to drop out.

Villanova's Hart told me Friday he also has not decided. "I haven't made my decision yet," he said. Hart still has workouts with San Antonio (Sunday) and Atlanta (Tuesday) before Wednesday's deadline.

Hart is a 6-6 shooting guard who averaged 15.5 points while shooting 51 percent from the field. He connected on 36 percent of his three-point attempts. Per DraftExpress, he is has a high basketball IQ and is an adequate defender despite many of the physical tools from an NBA standpoint.

Josh Hart is one of the best two-way shooting guards in college basketball, bringing a strong defensive and rebounding presence with a solid jump-shot, a high basketball IQ and the ability to play multiple positions and roles depending on what's asked of him on any given night. He spaces the floor effectively and is opportunistic with his ability to create his own shot out of pick and roll and isolation situations, where he finishes very well around the basket. Lacking a degree of size and physical tools from a NBA standpoint, a strong NCAA Tournament run will set up Hart nicely going into his senior campaign.

Kansas forward Cheick Diallo's stock has been on the rise ever since he put up a great showing at the Draft combine. He was in Atlanta on Monday for a workout with the Hawks and was reportedly impressive.

The Hawks currently hold the 21st pick in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft.
