Hornets host big men for workouts

BY foxsports • June 18, 2012

The New Orleans Hornets have the No. 1 and No. 10 picks in this month's draft, and they intend to keep the No. 10 choice.

To that end, general manager Dell Demps is sticking with pre-draft workouts, although he won't rule out a trade of the No. 10 pick.

The latest players to work out for the Hornets are 6-foot-11 Baylor forward Perry Jones III and 6-9 Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger. They visited the club's suburban training center Monday knowing that if they wind up in New Orleans, they'll join Kentucky star Anthony Davis, the consensus top overall pick, in the Hornets' front court.

The Hornets have hosted 11 players for workouts so far - seven play center or power forward and four play guard.
