In what will reportedly be their last pre-draft workout, the Los Angeles Lakers will bring in Zach Collins of Gonzaga, Avry Holmes of Clemson, Cole Huff of Creighton, Luke Nelson of UC Irvine, Luke Petrasek of Columbia and Seab Webster of Alabama-Huntsville to their practice facility Monday.

Collins is the most notable name among this group. The Gonzaga seven-footer averaged 10 points and 5.9 rebounds in his freshman season and is the 17th-ranked prospect in the 2017 NBA Draft, according to DraftExpress.

That rank likely leaves Collins below the level of prospect the Lakers would take with the No. 2 pick, with an unlikely chance to fall to their No. 28 pick if he takes a precipitous and unexpected tumble on draft night.

None of the other prospects in this workout are ranked in DraftExpress’ top-100 players in the draft and are likely being looked at as potential candidates to join the Lakers’ Las Vegas Summer League roster in undrafted free agency, or the South Bay Lakers next season.

Here is an updating list of every player the Lakers have worked out or met with. Harrison Faigen is co-host of the Locked on Lakers podcast (subscribe here), and you can follow him on Twitter at @hmfaigen.
