The first group of NBA draft prospects will be working out for the team's basketball operations staff on Tuesday morning. We'll be releasing the names of the six participants prior to the 10 a.m. workout tomorrow, and plan to have coverage of all Hornets draft workouts here in the blog. The 2008 NBA Draft is Thursday, June 26.
There are Hornets workout sessions scheduled this week for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. You can check the blog the morning of each workout day to find out which players are visiting New Orleans. We'll also have quotes from the participants a few hours after workouts are completed at the New Orleans Arena.
