It's officially draft workout time for the Wizards.

Washington's first known session with prospects from the 2014 class will take place on Tuesday at the Verizon Center. At least one of the six players knows how to get there.

Markel Starks, Georgetown's second-leading scorer last season, joins Michigan State's Keith Appling as the only guards set for Tuesday. The four frontcourt players includes Greek forward Thanasis Antetokounmpo, whose brother Giannis shined as a rookie for the Bucks last season.  Sam Dower (Gonzaga), Cory Jefferson (Baylor) and Jamil Wilson (Marquette) round out the group. 

The Wizards own the 46th overall pick, but do not have first round pick this year. None of these players are currently projected in round one.

Starks averaged 17.3 points and 4.1 assists last season with the Hoyas. The fiery team leader evolved into a quality point guard at Georgetown and typically defending the opposing team's top backcourt threat.
