The Washington Wizards will hold their first workouts for the 2017 NBA Draft on Tuesday at the Verizon Center and the list of prospects includes several local names.
Six players in total will participate as the Wizards, who own the 52nd overall pick in the second round, weigh their options. Highlighting the group is former Maryland standout Melo Trimble.
Here is the full list:
Jamel Artis, F, Pittsburgh (6-7, 215 lbs.)
James Blackmon, Jr., G, Indiana (6-4, 200 lbs.)
Daniel Dixon, G, William & Mary (6-5, 210 lbs.)
D.J. Fenner, G, Nevada (6-6, 205 lbs.)
Monte Morris, G, Iowa State (6-3, 175 lbs.)
Melo Trimble, G, Maryland (6-3, 185 lbs.)
Trimble, 22, is a local product through and through. He was born in Washington, D.C. and went to high school in Arlington, Va. at Bishop O'Connell. He is a former McDonald's All-American and Big Ten selection.
Dixon starred in the CAA for the Tribe. He grew up in Great Falls, Va. and went to Langley High School.
It's tough to read too much into the first predraft workout group, given the draft is still so far away. But it may be telling that five of the six prospects are guards, given their need for help behind John Wall and Bradley Beal.
The NBA Draft will take place on June 22.
