The NBA Draft won’t arrive until Thursday, June 20 and the all-important lottery won’t take place until Tuesday, May 14. However, the Atlanta Hawks have dozens of eligible prospects to evaluate before the bright lights emerge and, with that in mind, the team will open its pre-draft workouts on Tuesday, Apr. 30.
In advance of the 2018 draft, the Hawks were able to evaluate a number of intriguing prospects in their own facility, including eventual draftees Trae Young, Kevin Huerter and Omari Spellman. For the first installment on Tuesday, the organization will welcome six prospects to the the Emory Sports Medicine Complex.
The headliner for the first workout is Nevada forward Jordan Caroline, who averaged 17.0 points and 9.6 rebounds per game this season. He was an All-Mountain West Conference first team selection and Caroline was a central piece in Nevada’s recent collegiate success. From a draft perspective, he is likely a second-round consideration but Caroline brings an intriguing skill set to the table.
Caroline is joined by Cal State Fullerton guard Kyle Allman Jr., Alabama forward Donta Hall, NC State guard Markell Johnson, South Carolina forward Chris Silva and Nevada forward Tre’Shawn Thurman.
