Also working out this day were guards Jabari Brown (Missouri), T.J. Bray (Princeton) and Chaz Williams (Massachusetts) and forward-center Alec Brown (Green Bay).
In addition, the Jazz hosted a free agent minicamp that week in which 27 players participated, including three former Utah players: Carlon Brown, who transferred to Colorado from the U., Weber State's Nick Covington and the Utes' Jason Washburn.
Group 12: June 13
UCLA guard-forward Kyle Anderson highlighted this pre-draft workout; he is projected to be available in the range when the Jazz have their 23rd pick in the first round: "I think I can play a lot of different positions, which helps me. It's to my advantage," Anderson said.
Also working out that day were guards Melvin Johnson (Arkansas State) and Davon Usher (Delaware), in addition to forwards Jeronne Maymon (Tennessee), Devin Oliver (Dayton) and Tyler Stone (Southeast Missouri State).
Another potential top-five draft pick was on display when the Jazz brought in Indiana's Vonleh 10 days before the draft. The first edition of the Deseret News NBA mock draft had Vonleh heading to the Jazz with the fifth pick.
“Whoever takes me, I’ll be willing to go there and from Day One and work hard and better myself as a player and help my team get better," Vonleh told the Deseret News. "I’m only 18 years old — I’m going to get a lot stronger as the years go on.’’
Also at the workout were guards Bryon Allen (George Mason) and Markel Brown (Oklahoma State), forwards C.J. Fair (Syracuse) and David Wear (UCLA) and center John Bohannon (UTEP).
Utah State's Shaw and Marquette's Wilson also returned for a second workout.
Jus like the pre-draft workout two days before, the Jazz brought in a big man who could be available at the No. 5 pick in Kentucky power forward Julius Randle. He was a double-double threat his freshman year with the Wildcats, averaging 15 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.
“They have a great new coach and the Jazz organization is tremendous,’’ Randle said. “I think I fit in well. I’m a very versatile player so I can play many different ways and can adjust to many different situations. It would be a good fit here."
Also participating in the workout were guards Mike Burwell (Towson); Langston Hall (Mercer); Jordan McRae (Tennessee); Kendall Williams (New Mexico); guard-forward Casey Prather (Florida); and forwards DeAndre Daniels (Connecticut), and Tristan Spurlock (Central Florida).
