The Los Angeles Lakers brought in another six draft prospects on Monday morning: Zach Collins, Avry Holmes, Cole Huff, Luke Nelson, Luke Petrasek and Seab Webster, which should conclude their workouts leading up to the 2017 NBA draft.
Unlike the other draft prospects, Collins is expected to be a lottery pick. In contrast to his previous handful of workouts with other teams that were all individual, Collins’ group workout was the first he’s had, which he said was actually a lot easier than his other workouts.
Collins a 7’0, 230 lbs. forward, and the first one-and-done player at Gonzaga earned WCC All-Conference Second Team, WCC All-Freshman Team and NABC All-District 9 Second Team honors.
Nelson (guard, 6’3, 190 lbs., UC-Irvine) from Worthing, England spent the past four seasons with the Anteaters, where he appeared in 119 games (112 starts) averaging 12.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals for his career.
Holmes (guard, 6’2, 195 lbs., Clemson) appeared in 126 career games (99 starts) at Clemson and San Francisco. Touted for his shooting, Holmes led the ACC in 3FG% (44.2) after going 69-156 from three-point range.
Huff (forward, 6’8, 210 lbs., Creighton) posted career-highs in FG% (.459), 3FG% (.463) and FT% (.839). Petrasek (forward, 6’10, 230 lbs., Columbia) was second team All-Ivy League and started all 27 games he played in in his senior season, reaching double-figures in 20 games with six 20-point outings.
Webster (forward, 6’6, 225 lbs., Alabama-Huntsville) was first team All-Gulf South Conference in 2016 and 2017, averaging 18.8 points (.454 FG%), 8.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 2016-17.
