After hosting their first pre-draft workouts this past Monday, the Indiana Pacers will begin the second session of workouts on Wednesday, as confirmed by the team’s official Twitter account.

The six prospects working out with Indiana will be Dillon Brooks (Oregon), Mike Young (Pittsburgh), Dwayne Bacon (Florida St.), Sindarius Thornwell (S. Carolina), and Southern Methodist’s Sami Ojeleye and Ben Moore.

Monday’s pre-draft workout included likely first-round options for the Pacers - who own the No. 18 selection in this year’s draft - such as the likes of Caleb Swanigan (Purdue) and Josh Hart (Villanova). Given the talent that Indiana is set to work out and evaluate on Wednesday, it can be assumed that the six players mentioned above could be possible options for the Pacers in the 2nd round of next June’s NBA draft.

The 2017 NBA Draft is set to take place on Thursday, June 22 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
