Fredette headlines Thursday's workout

There will be no Kemba Walker at Thursday's pre-draft workout, but the lineup still has some names to watch.

The big name is BYU guard Jimmer Fredette. He'll be joined by potential first-round picks - Tennessee forward Tobias Harris and UCLA forward Tyler Honeycutt. They will be joined by South Carolina forward Sam Muldrow, Kentucky center Josh Harrellson and UTEP guard Randy Culpepper.

Fredette (6-2) is a candidate for the Kings with their first-round pick at No. 7. The prolific scorer is the kind of shooting threat the Kings are looking to add.

But don't look at Harris and Honeycutt as simply add in. One could come to the Kings should the team manage to pull off a trade for another first-round pick or if one slips to the second round.

Honeycutt (6-8) is a defensive-minded player that is said to be a good passer and have a high basketball IQ. His numbers (12.8 points, 7.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore) aren't spectacular, but history has shown UCLA players under Ben Howland often don't put up big numbers for him but prove to be productive pros (Jordan Farmar, Darren Collison and Jrue Holiday).

Harris (6-8) is a power forward whose bio sounds a lot like former King Carl Landry's. He's an energy player that can shoot but might be undersized.

Walker, the standout guard from Connecticut was slated to be in this group but had to withdraw becaue he had two workouts this week. Walker is tentatively scheduled to workout for the Kings June. 13.
