The Jazz on Wednesday will get an up-close look at Roy Hibbert, a 7-foot-2 senior center from Georgetown University that several Internet sites predict will be taken by Utah with its No. 23 overall first-round selection in the June 26 NBA Draft.
Hibbert averaged 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game for the Hoyas last season.
Also working out along with Hibbert will be University of Utah senior guard Johnnie Bryant, who is not expected to be taken in the two-round NBA draft.
It will be the first in a succession of Jazz-hosted workouts leading up to the draft.Among the many others expected to audition before the month is done: 7-foot Stanford sophomore center Robin Lopez, also a possible Jazz pick at 23, and 6-11 BYU junior center Trent Plaisted, regarded by some teams and multiple mocks as a probable second-round pick.
