    The Sixers will hold their first pre-draft workout on Monday. 

    Kentucky guard Isaiah Briscoe, George Washington forward Tyler Cavanaugh, Tennessee State guard Tahjere McCall, Weber State guard Jeremy Senglin, Maryland guard Melo Trimble and Colorado guard Derrick White will participate at the Sixers training complex in Camden, N.J. 

    The Sixers hold the third, 36th, 39th, 46th and 50th picks in the draft on June 22. These players would be projected for the second round. 

    Isaiah Briscoe, sophomore, G, 6-3/218

    Kentucky teammates De'Aaron Fox and Malik Monk could be potential fits for the Sixers with the third pick; could Briscoe join them in the second? The versatile Newark. N.J. native ranks third in assists under head coach John Calipari, as well as top 10 in total rebounds, field goals, steals, points, assists per game and assist-to-turnover ratio.

    Tyler Cavanaugh, senior, F, 6-9/238

    Cavanaugh is the lone forward in this workout. The big man has an outside game, though. He shot 40.9 percent from three last season. Cavanaugh also ranked second on his team in total assists. He finished his college career at George Washington after playing the first two at Wake Forest. 

    2016-17 average: 18.3 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists

    Jeremy Senglin, senior, G, 6-2/195

    Senglin left Weber State as the school's all-time leading scorer, surpassing the totals of Damian Lillard. Not too shabby. He also wrapped up his four-year career as the school's and Big Sky Conference's leader in made three-pointers (he shot 43.7 percent as a senior) and second in the conference in scoring. "He's a hell of a player," Lillard said of Senglin this season. [LINK:]

    Derrick White, senior, G, 6-5/200
