Ben Simmons' Teammate Among Sixers Workout Participants Monday

This is Philadelphia's third group workout.

The Sixers will host their third round of pre-draft workouts at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on Monday, bringing in six new faces to show off their skills. All are projected to be second round prospects, at best.

The most prominent name to work out for the Sixers on Monday is LSU point guard Tim Quarterman, who decided to join teammate Ben Simmons by making the jump to the NBA after his junior season in Baton Rouge. He averaged 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game, but played 156 minutes less than he did the previous season. At 6' 6", 187 lbs., Quarterman has great size for the point guard position but is very frail and too much in love with his jump shot to be a real NBA prospect right now. Draft Express ranks him as their 71st best prospect.

Weber State power forward Joel Bolomboy is the most intriguing name of this group. The 22-year-old averaged 17.1 points and 12.6 rebounds during his senior year, earning him Big Sky Player of the Year honors. He also received an invitation NBA Combine where he seemed to hold his own. Draft Express has him ranked 58th in their top 100.

Former Kansas guard Brannen Greene will also participate in the workout after narrowly escaping death in a car accident just over a week ago. Greene played sparingly over his three seasons at Kansas despite shooting very well from beyond the arc. His relationship with head coach Bill Self seemed to sour after the Georgia native was suspended for six games this season for arguing about his playing time, and he opted to turn pro instead of returning to school for one final season. Draft Express ranks him as the 89th best prospect in this draft class.

Texas A&M's Danuel House, Texas point guard Isaiah Taylor and Boise State's James Webb III round out the rest of the group.

House spent time at Houston before transferring to A&M, and led the Aggies in scoring. Draft Express did not rate him in their top 100. Taylor was named First-team All-Big 12 this year after leading the Longhorns with 15.0 points and 5.0 assists per game. He's ranked 67th overall by Draft Express. Webb is believed to be the first player in Boise State basketball history to declare early for the NBA Draft. He averaged 15.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game during his sophomore season.
