Also, invited to the six-player workout: UCLA’s Bryce Alford, Nevada’s Cameron Oliver, Florida’s Devin Robinson and Nebraska’s Tai Webster.
Mitchell, at 6-3, played mostly shooting guard at Louisville, but might play some point guard in the NBA. He was one of college basketball’s better perimeter defenders last season, taking advantage of his 6-10 wingspan; extraordinary for his height.
Mitchell averaged 15.6 points and 2.7 assists for the Cardinals last season.
Ferguson, who grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, chose to play last season professionally with the Adelaide 36ers, rather than spend a season in college basketball before entering the NBA draft.
At 6-7, Ferguson is projected as a shooting guard at the NBA level. He played just 15 minutes per game for Adelaide, averaging 4.6 points and 0.6 assists.
