Pre-Draft Workouts: Hornets, Malique Jacobs, Bucks, Grizzlies

The Hornets held a pre-draft workout with six players on Tuesday, the team announced in a press release.Malique Jacobs

Eastern Washington forward Angelo Allegri, Kent State guard Malique Jacobs, NC State point guard Jarkel Joiner, Illinois State guard Seneca Knight, Chattanooga center Jake Stephens (Chattanooga) and Georgetown center Qudus Wahab.

None of the six are expected to be selected in the draft, but even if not, the Hornets and other teams are using this period to fill out summer rosters — and, of course, try to find a diamond in the rough.


  • Utah center Branden Carlson worked out for the Bucks on Tuesday, per Josh Newman of the Salt Lake Tribune. Carlson has retained an agent for the time being, Newman added.
  • As we relayed here, the Bucks also invited Dayton guard/forward Mike Sharavjamts in for a workout. Sharavjamts is also expected to work out for the Mavericks and Jazz, among others.


  • The Grizzlies worked out Furman forward Jalen Slawson on Tuesday, the school announced in a press release. Slawson averaged 15.6 points and 7.1 rebounds this past season and has been making the rounds on the pre-draft circuit.
