Here is a portion of Thursday's blog on the team's first scheduled workout Saturday:
The 6-foot-9 Allen averaged 11.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and was named the Big 5 Player of the Year as a senior for the Owls. Most mock drafts don't project Allen, 22, to be one of the 60 picks in the June 23 draft.

The 6-9 Jackson averaged 13.1 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks for the Orange. It's possible he won't be selected, either.
The Sixers, who need a defensive-minded big man and a scorer, have the 16th and 50th selections in the draft.
