New Wolves boss David Kahn and the team’s existing scouting staff return from the Chicago combine this weekend and get extra busy with draft preparations starting Monday, when the team hosts four days of pre-draft workouts that are expected to draw scouts from as many as 17 NBA teams.

A different group of players will work out morning and afternoon for at least the first three days.

Due in Monday morning: USC guard Daniel Hackett, Ohio State center B.J. Mullins, Utah center Luke Nevill, Israeli forward Omri Casspi and North Carolina forward Danny Green.

Due in Monday afternoon: UConn guard A.J. Price, UCLA guard Darren Collison, Villanova forward Dante Cunningham, Texas A&M forward Chinemelu Elonu, Georgia Tech forward Gani Lawal and Gonzaga forward Austin Daye.

The Wolves will look at most of those guys in case they keep that 28th overall pick and for their two second rounders. The exceptions are Mullins and Daye, whom the team could consider for that 18th overall pick.

All of the workouts in the team’s Target Center practice facility are closed to the public.

Not sure yet which players they will consider with that No. 6 overall pick will come to Target Center. Already sounds like James Harden will be very selective in his workouts.
