The Jazz will work out six pro prospects on Sunday, including highly regarded University of Florida big man Marreese Speights.
The 6-foot-10 Speights is a possible first-round selection for the Jazz in the June 26 NBA Draft, though he could be long gone by the time Utah picks at No. 23 overall.
Another possible Jazz who will work out Sunday in Utah is Rider power forward Jason Thompson, who according to various Internet mock drafts could go anywhere from the latter half of the first round to the first half of the second round.
Also scheduled to audition Sunday: 6-10 Cal power forward Ryan Anderson, 6-9 Indiana power forward D.J. White, Alabama point guard Ronald Steele and University of Utah point Johnnie Bryant.
According to ESPN.com, Anderson and White could go late in the first round or sometime in the second, and Steele is a likely second-rounder.
Bryant is a fill-in for previously scheduled Swedish point guard Rudy Mbemba, who was injured in a previous workout elsewhere.
It's the second Jazz workout for Bryant, who said last week that he hopes to earn a summer-league invitation and perhaps embark on a playing career overseas.Besides 23, the Jazz also select at No. 44 overall in the second round of the 60-pick draft.
