The Washington Wizards have their second predraft workout set for Monday at the Verizon Center and this group of players includes one of the biggest stars in college basketball.
Kansas guard Frank Mason III, the 2017 NCAA player of the year, will work out in a group of six players that also includes Oregon sharpshooter Tyler Dorsey.
Here is the full list:
G Tyler Dorsey, Oregon (6-4, 180)
C Isaac Humphries, Kentucky (7-0, 255)
F Moses Kingsley, Arkansas (6-10, 230)
G Frank Mason III, Kansas (5-11, 190)
F Ben Moore, SMU (6-8, 220)
F Michael Young, Pittsburgh (6-9, 235)
Mason and Dorsey are both projected to be selected in the second round by DraftExpress.com, while the rest are on the bubble and could go undrafted. Mason, 23, is a native of Virginia, having grown up in Petersburg just south of Richmond. He played four years at Kansas and as a senior averaged 20.9 points on 49 percent shooting, including 47.1 percent from three.
Mason’s Jayhawks lost to Dorsey and the Oregon Ducks in the Elite Eight. Dorsey, 21, hit six threes in that game. As a sophomore in 2016-17, Dorsey averaged 14.6 points and shot 46.7 percent from three.
The Wizards’ first predraft group was all guards. This one has a few big men mixed in, though both Mason and Dorsey represent good options for the Wizards to secure their backup guard position.
