SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz are taking a brief break from hosting pre-draft workouts.

They are still plenty busy, though.

Twenty-seven NBA hopefuls are working with the Jazz through Thursday in the team's annual free-agent minicamp.

Current Jazz big man Jack Cooley and former Utah shooting guard Patrick Christopher both participated in the 2014 camp.

This year's workout sessions include some familiar names: former Jazz power forward Brock Motum; ex-Clemson baller Devin Booker, the younger brother of Jazzman Trevor Booker; and 2012 Bulls first-round pick Marquis Teague.

Eight players from the previous two minicamps appeared in NBA games during the ensuing seasons, the Jazz pointed out in a press release.

This camp began Tuesday with physicals and will include two-a-day sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.

Multiple members of the Jazz's D-League affiliate, the Idaho Stampede, will take part in the camp, including Jared Cunningham, Brandon Fields, Shane Gibson and Nick Wiggins.

Other campers include: John Bohannon, Jarell Eddie, Fuquan Edwin, Moustapha Fall, Erick Griffin, JaJuan Johnson, Halil Kanacevic, DeAndre Kane, C.J. Leslie, Trent Lockett, Xavier Munford, Romero Osby, Casey Prather, Victor Rudd, D.J. Seeley, Jonathon Simmons, Dominique Sutton, Jarvis Varnado, Scottie Wilbekin and Jamil Wilson.
