Hornets Work Out Draft Prospects

From ESPN: "[Terrence] Jones was one of nine prospects the Hornets invited to their suburban training center on Monday for the first pre-draft workouts since they learned in the NBA lottery that they would be picking first and 10th overall. "The 6-foot-9 Jones worked out with four other fount court players: 7-foot Tyler Zeller and 6-11 John Henson of North Carolina, along with Illinois 7-1 center Meyers Leonard and Mississippi State 6-11 forward Arnett Moultrie. The guards working out for coach Monty Williams and general manager Dell Demps were Duke's Austin Rivers, Connecticut's Jeremy Lamb, Washington's Terrence Ross and Maryland's Terrell Stoglin. Demps said there are probably fewer than 10 other players he wants to see in person, and that the club probably will schedule more workouts in about two weeks, after next week's NBA draft combine and another similar event for European players. Williams has coveted an abundance of length in the front court ever since seeing how the Los Angeles Lakers' combination of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum frustrated the Hornets' in the 2011 playoffs. New Orleans has 6-10 Emeka Okafor, 7-foot Jason Smith and 6-10 Gustavo Ayon under contract for next season. Davis is 6-11, and the Hornets could easily envision adding another big player. "It's a real possibility," Williams said. "That's why we brought those guys in, because there's so many bigs that can go in the top 10, so we've got to take a look at all of them." ----- Lots of really interesting Hornets tidbits in that article (including the fact that Austin Rivers has known Monty Williams since he was a "small child") so go check it out.
