The Los Angeles Lakers announced the team would work out Isaiah Briscoe and Isaac Humphries of Kentucky, Torian Graham of Arizona State, Wesley Iwundu of Kansas State, Luke Kornet of Vanderbilt and Ben Moore of SMU Monday.

Outside of Moore and Graham, all of the members of this group are ranked in DraftExpress’ top-100 prospects list, with Iwundu sitting highest as the 53rd-best player according to the rankings.

Iwundu averaged 13 points and 6.3 rebounds during his senior season at Kansas State. The 6’7 shooting guard boasts a 7’1 wingspan, the type of measurables that lead teams to take a chance on an older prospect.

Iwundu and the rest of these players are likely being looked at in case the Lakers decide to buy a late pick, or as roster filler for the team’s Las Vegas Summer League squad.
