E.J. Lidell – Ohio State – forward
Like several players reported to be in the mix for Boston’s pre-draft workouts, Lidell has not hired an agent to retain college eligibility and may return to the Buckeyes based on the feedback he gets.
A 6-foot-7 forward who logged 16.2 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 blocks per game with Ohio State in his sophomore season, Lidell needs to work on his 3-point shot to play as a forward at the next level.
Troy Baxter Jr. – Morgan State – forward
Baxter is highly mobile both on and off the court, having transferred from UNLV to Florida Gulf Coast, and then again to Morgan State in search of more playing time for the final two seasons of his collegiate career.
