Allen, five others to work out for Hawks on Sunday

Grayson Allen of Duke will be one of six players to participate in a pre-draft workout for the Hawks on Sunday.

The Atlanta Hawks have been one of the most active teams in conducting pre-draft workouts.

With five picks in the upcoming NBA draft, that makes sense.

That trend will continue Sunday as Atlanta will host six more players for a communal workout, according to the team.

The Hawks will host Duke guard Grayson Allen, Creighton guard Marcus Foster, Louisville center Anas Mahmoud, Rhode Island guard E.C. Matthews, Nevada-Las Vegas center Brandon McCoy and Boston College guard Jerome Robinson.

Atlanta holds the third, the 19th (via Minnesota), the 30th (via Minnesota), the 30th (via Houston) and the 33rd overall selections in the NBA draft, which will be held June 21 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
