Sixers to work out 6 draft prospects Wednesday


A day after hosting a pre-draft workout that included potential top-three pick Jaylen Brown from the University of California (see story), the Sixers will host another group session Wednesday at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. The workout will feature a set of six players, including former Michigan State guard Bryn forbes.

Bryn Forbes (6-3/190, Michigan State)
Forbes is a 23-year-old guard who played two seasons at Big Ten powerhouse Michigan State after transferring from Cleveland State following his sophomore season. Forbes made a name for himself at Michigan State by displaying his innate ability to shoot the three. In his senior season, Forbes led the Big Ten with 112 made three-pointers while shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc. Despite his pure shooting ability, Forbes' major weaknesses include his one-dimensional offensive game as well as his smaller frame. 

Grandy Glaze (6-6/235, Grand Canyon)
A native of Canada, Glaze transferred from Saint Louis to Grand Canyon for his senior season. As a forward at Grand Canyon, Glaze averaged 14 points and just under nine rebounds per game. Coming in as a relative unknown, Glaze must show scouts something special in order to prove he's ready for the NBA. 

Stefan Jankovic (6-11/235, Hawaii)
After spending two years in the SEC at Missouri, Jankovic transferred to Hawaii, where he made an immediate impact thanks to his size and shooting ability. In his final season with the Rainbow Warriors, Jankovic averaged 15.6 points per game while shooting an impressive 54 percent from the field, including 39 percent from beyond the arc. Jankovic won Big West Player of the Year honors while leading his team to an NCAA Tournament berth. 

Retin Obasohan (6-1/210, Alabama)
Another under the radar prospect is Belgian native Retin Obasohan. At Alabama, Obasohan proved to be a multi-dimensional player, showing off his natural scoring ability as well as his tenacious defense on the other side of the ball. Obahosan averaged 17.6 points per game in his senior season while shooting 47 percent from the field. He finished his career ranked eighth in Alabama history with 154 steals and was named to the SEC All-Defensive team following the 2015-16 season. 

David Walker (6-6/200, Northeastern)
Walker is another pure scorer in this year's draft. Projecting as a point guard or shooting guard, Walker averaged 17.9 points per game while shooting 45 percent from the field, including a remarkable 41 percent from three. He also chipped in four assists per game for the Huskies. With good size and natural scoring ability, look for Walker to land a summer league invite from someone if he goes undrafted. 

Stephen Zimmerman (7-0/240, UNLV)
A 7-foot freshman, Zimmerman averaged 10.5 points and 8.7 rebounds in his lone season for the Rebels. Despite playing just one season in college, Zimmerman has maintained potential first-round status on most NBA mock draft boards in recent months. Zimmerman is a highly skilled big man with the ability to hit a mid-range jump shot. This should set him apart from other centers in the draft as not all have the ability to knock down a 15-footer. With traditional centers becoming more rare with each passing year, Zimmerman must continue to work on his outside shot if he wants to make it in today's NBA.
