Today, the Orlando Magic will work out a group that includes UCF power forward Keith Clanton, Florida power forward Erik Murphy and Florida State guard Michael Snaer, a team official said.
The team also will work out Florida guard Kenny Boynton, and likely other prospects, on Thursday.
The Magic hold the second and 51st overall picks in the draft, which will be held on June 27. The website DraftExpress ranks Murphy as the No. 53 prospect for the upcoming draft and Snaer as the No. 64 prospect.
Magic officials have hoped to work out up to several dozen prospects at separate points in Orlando before the draft.
The Magic want to gain as much information as possible about as many players as possible -- through interviews, through workouts and through physical testing/measurements.
The information collected would remain with the team well beyond the draft and would inform the team's thinking for future decisions about free-agent signings and trades.
For example, the Oklahoma City Thunder, including then-Thunder assistant general manager Rob Hennigan, met with Tobias Harris prior to the 2011 draft.
The Charlotte Bobcats wound up selecting Harris with the 19th overall pick, then traded his draft rights to the Milwaukee Bucks.
But Hennigan, now the Magic's GM, used his background knowledge about Harris as last season's NBA trade deadline approached. Hennigan ultimately traded J.J. Redick, Gustavo Ayón and Ish Smith for Harris, Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih.
The Magic hosted Kentucky center Nerlens Noel and Michigan point guard Trey Burke in recent days. The team reportedly also has worked out Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo.
A source told the Orlando Sentinel that Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore likely will visit the Magic on June 11.
