Monroe, Whiteside to return for a second workout

The Kings will take a second look at Georgetown sophomore Greg Monroe and Marshall freshman Hassan Whiteside in a pre-draft workout on Saturday.

Monroe (6-11, 247) worked out for the Kings June 6. Whiteside (7-0, 222) was one of five post players the Kings hosted June 8 in their workout that featured no one shorter than 6-foot-10.

The other players who will take part in the workout with Monroe and Whiteside will be announced later this week.

I've heard the Kings like Monroe, but bringing Whiteside back is interesting. Whiteside isn't considered a top-5 prospect by most pundits, but who knows?

Maybe the Kings see something in him or they plan to trade down and select Whiteside.

*The Kings will hold a workout Saturday morning before Monroe and Whiteside workout with their group in the afternoon.

*The Kings will hold a workout Friday, too.

Here are the players scheduled to workout, with one more name to be added later:

Keith "Tiny" Gallon, F, Oklahoma (6-10, 302)
Stanley Robinson, F, Connecticut (6-8, 213)
Nic Wise, G, Arizona (5-10, 177)
Demond "Tweety" Carter, G, Baylor (5-11, 185)
Omar Samhan, C, Saint Mary's (6-11, 265)
