Miles Bridges, Lonnie Walker Headline Sixers' Pre-draft Workout Monday

The Sixers on Monday will host six prospects for a pre-draft workout.

The group is headlined by Michigan State's Miles Bridges and Miami's Lonnie Walker IV, but also includes Jared Nickens (Maryland), Drew Eubanks (Oregon State), Shake Milton (SMU) and Nuni Omot (Baylor). Both Bridges and Walker are projected lottery picks and could be targets for the Sixers with the No. 10 pick in the draft on June 21.

As a sophomore last season, Bridges averaged 17.1 points and seven rebounds, while shooting 45.7 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from three. Bridges, who stands 6-7 with a smooth shooting stroke, has the tools to be a two-way player at the next level (see Bridges' prospect profile).

In Walker's lone season at Miami he averaged 11.5 points per game, shooting 41.5 percent from the field and 34.6 percent from deep. The 6-4 shooting guard is a flat-out scorer and could provide the shot creation that the Sixers are in need of (see Walker's prospect profile).

None of the other four prospects are projected to go in the first round. Milton is the most likely of the four to get drafted after scoring 18 points per game in an injury-shortened junior season. 

In addition to No. 10, the Sixers also have picks 26, 38, 39, 56 and 60.
