Caleb Martin, a 6-6 forward from Nevada, talks about his pre-draft workout with the Sacramento Kings, his pending decision whether or not to enter the NBA draft, and playing for Eric Musselman on Monday, May 21, 2018.

The Kings will hold their first pre-draft workout Monday at the team practice facility at Golden 1 Center.

Sacramento has the second overall pick and the sixth pick in the second round (No. 36 overall) in the 2018 NBA draft, which will be held June 21.

The six-player workout will include Xavier guard Trevon Bluiett, West Virginia guard Jevon Carter, Kentucky forward Wenyen Gabriel, Nevada forward Caleb Martin, Tulane forward Cameron Reynolds and UC Santa Barbara guard Gabe Vincent. None of them are candidates to be selected with the No. 2 pick.

A player who could be selected at that spot is EuroLeague MVP Luka Doncic.

Kings general manager Vlade Divac traveled to Serbia to watch the Real Madrid star in the league championship game Sunday against Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul, Bogdan Bogdanovic's former team, which won the title last year.

The group of elite prospects who could visit Sacramento as candidates for the No. 2 pick includes Arizona center Deandre Ayton, Michigan State forward Jaren Jackson Jr., Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr., Texas center Mohamed Bamba and Oklahoma guard Trae Young.

The Kings will look at first-round prospects who might not be considered top-two prospects to keep open the option of trading down and landing a player they like if a deal worth making surfaces.
