Memphis freshman Josh Minott will be among the draft prospects to work out with the Indiana Pacers on Friday, the team announced. It is their first workout ahead of the draft.
Minott, who does not plan to return to Memphis, was named to the AAC All-Freshman team after averaging 6.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 33 games. He produced his best game of the season on Jan. 23 with 18 points and nine rebounds in a win against Tulsa.
The 6-foot-8 forward is considered to be a potential first-round pick after a strong season with the Tigers. He has also worked out with the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks, and will compete in the draft combine May 18-20 in Chicago, Illinois.
In addition to Minott, the Pacers will also work out Utah Valley center Fardaws Aimaq, Michigan center Moussa Diabate, USC guard Boogie Ellis, Saint Joseph’s guard Jordan Hall and Davidson forward Hyunjung Lee on Friday.
Indiana enters the pre-draft process slotted fifth in the first round prior to the draft lottery after finishing with a 25-57 record. They also have the 31st pick from the Houston Rockets and the 60th pick from the Phoenix Suns.
The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
