The Kings will host five prospects Sunday for a predraft workout at the team practice facility.

The quintet includes two first-round prospects, Wisconsin forward Sam Dekker and Arizona forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

Dekker (6-9, 219) averaged 13.9 points as a junior for the Badgers, who lost to Duke in the NCAA Championship title game. His versatility is said to be a strength but his shooting could be better. He shot just 33.1 percent from the college three-point line as a junior.

Hollis-Jefferson (6-7, 217) averaged 11.2 points and 6.8 rebounds as a sophomore for the Wildcats. He’s also seen as a prospect with versatility who could become a good defender. His offensive ability at the pro level has also been questioned.

Neither is considered likely to be picked where the Kings are in the first round, sixth overall.

Point guard Mike Caffey (6-0, 180, Long Beach State), power forward Duje Dukan (6-10, 218, Wisconsin), and point guard Juwan Staten (5-11, 186 lbs, West Virginia) are also scheduled to be a part of the workout.
