WESTWEGO, La. (AP) - Terrence Jones says he likes the idea of playing in New Orleans with Kentucky teammate and presumed top overall NBA draft choice Anthony Davis.
Jones is one of nine prospects the Hornets, who have both the first and 10th overall picks, have invited to their suburban training center for pre-draft workouts on Monday.
The 6-foot-9 Jones has worked out with four other fount court players: 7-foot Tyler Zeller and 6-11 John Henson of North Carolina, along with Illinois 7-1 center Meyers Leonard and Mississippi State 6-11 forward Arnett Moultrie.
The guards working out for coach Monty Williams and general manager Dell Demps are Duke's Austin Rivers, Connecticut's Jeremy Lamb, Washington's Terrence Ross and Maryland's Terrell Stoglin.
