The Wizards will host six prospects on Friday at their practice facility in Congress Heights, D.C. They are Kavell Bigby-Williams (LSU), Jordan Caroline (Nevada), Aubrey Dawkins (UCF), William McDowell-White (Australia), Justin Robinson (Virginia Tech) and Elijah Thomas (Clemson).

According to Sports Illustrated’s list of Top 100 NBA prospects, Caroline was the No. 66 prospect, Robinson was ranked No. 71 and Dawkins was ranked No. 86.

Like the workouts over each of the previous days, the players who are attending these workouts are probably not getting drafted. In this group, there’s a chance that Caroline, Robinson or Dawkins could be a second-round pick, but the Wizards don’t have any such picks in this year’s draft. Therefore, these players are more likely to be candidates for Summer League and future training camp spots in the weeks and months ahead.

Of the players coming in today, Robinson is a local product from Manassas, Va. where he led the Hokies to a Sweet 16 berth in the NCAA Tournament as a senior. Robinson averaged 13.5 points and 5 assists a game in his senior season while also shooting 41.8 percent from the three-point line.
