Penny Hardaway and the Memphis Tigers will be reportedly hosting a pro day and open practice for NBA teams next month to scout projected lottery picks Jalen Duren, Emoni Bates and others.

The pro day will take place at the Tigers’ practice facility on Oct. 6 with the open practice set to happen the following day, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN. The event will mirror that of an NBA pre-draft workout with measurements, athletic testing, shooting drills and scrimmages.

Memphis previously conducted a pro day two years ago with eventual first-round picks James Wiseman and Precious Achiuwa. The event garnered around 70 executives and scouts in attendance to see the Tigers’ roster up close on the court.

Duren and Bates will be the center of attention this year as the two players each project to be future high draft picks. Duren will be eligible to be drafted next year, and is considered to be a potential top-five pick, while Bates can enter the draft in 2023.

In addition to Duren and Bates, Tigers players Earl Timberlake, Lester Quinones, DeAndre Williams and Landers Nolley II will also be in attendance at the pro day.
