Today the Kings announced another group workout, featuring Terrence Jones, a Forward from Kentucky. Jones will be joined by Maalik Wayns (PG, Villanova), Andre Young (PG, Clemson), Kevin Jones (PF, West Virginia), Garrett Stutz (C, Wichita St.), and Mitchell Watt (PF, Buffalo). Of that group of players, only Kevin Jones is expected to be drafted.

Terrence Jones would be considered a reach at 5 but he does seem like a player that the team could fall in love with. Highly skilled, Jones possesses a very well-rounded game and possesses great physical tools. Jones' measurements at the combine are very similar to that of Kansas Power Forward Thomas Robinson. However, Jones plays very differently. Despite having the body of a PF, Jones plays very much like a SF, featuring a well-rounded perimeter game while only being a mediocre rebounder. He is however, an above average defender and shotblocker.

Questions with Jones revolve namely around fit (is he a 3 or 4?) and attitude. He seemed to resolve a few of those questions last year during Kentucky's national championship run.

On a side note, I'm a bit disappointed that the Kings have yet to work out more than one top prospect at a time. Each of the top prospects involved have either gone up against projected 2nd rounders/undrafteds or by themselves. We also haven't seen some of the bigger names like Barnes, Beal, Kidd-Gilchrist or Robinson and have no idea one whether or not their agents will even allow them to work out for Sacramento.
