Purdue point guard Carsen Edwards and Virginia wing Ty Jerome are among those taking part in a pre-draft workout for the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.
Both are projected to go late in the first round or early in the second.
Edwards and Jerome are actually taking part in the two separate sessions of a group workout. Along with Jerome, the first group consists of Brian Bowen II (Australia), Jaylen Nowell (Washington), Josh Perkins (Gonzaga), Dylan Windler (Belmont) and Justin Wright-Foreman (Hofstra).
The second group consists of Edwards, Nicolas Claxton (Georgia), CJ Elleby (Washington State), Derrik Smits (Butler), and Lamar Stevens (Penn State).
The Detroit Pistons brought in two groups for pre-draft workouts Monday, including Michigan forward forward Ignas Brazdeikis, as relayed by Keith Laglois of Pistons.com.
The first group consisted of center/power forwards Naz Reid (LSU) and Marques Bolden (Duke), point guards Justin Robinson (Virginia Tech) and Andrew Nembhard (Florida) and forward Louis King (Oregon). The second consisted of shooting guards Quinndary Weatherspoon (Mississippi State), Ethan Thompson (Oregon State) and Ahmed Hill (Virginia Tech), forwards Martin Krampelj (Creighton) and Savion Flagg (Texas A&M) and point guard Phil Booth (Villanova).
Brazdeikis, by the way, said he is leaning toward staying in the draft. He is projected to go anywhere from the late-first to mid-second round.
