Former Arizona Wildcats guard Rawle Alkins will work out for the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, the team announced on Twitter.

The workout will also feature UCLA’s Jaylen Hands, Western Michigan’s Thomas Wilder, Virginia’s Devon Hall, La Salle’s B.J. Johnson, and Colorado’s George King.

This is the first team workout Alkins has been linked to during the pre-draft process, but it surely won’t be his last.

The Brooklyn native is generally projected to be selected anywhere from the late-first round to late-second round, making these workouts crucial for his draft stock.

Alkins had a mostly good showing at the NBA Combine last week, too, which should only help.

The Kings have picks Nos. 2 and 37, which means there is a real chance they could select Deandre Ayton at No. 2 (if the Suns pass on him) and Alkins at 37.

The NBA Draft is on June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Alkins averaged 13.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists as a sophomore. The 20-year-old reportedly signed with agents Dan Frank and Jarinn Akana.
