Utah Jazz workout on Saturday to feature multiple potential draftees, including Utah native Caleb Swanigan

The Utah Jazz might not be bringing in any marquee names for a workout on Saturday like they did when Louisville's Donovan Mitchell came to town, but this audition will certainly be the deepest the team has conducted this spring.

Four players among the six who will work out for Jazz brass appear in the latest mock draft from DraftExpress, including Beehive State native Caleb Swanigan. Oklahoma State guard Jawun Evans, Colorado guard Derrick White and French big man Mathias Lessort are the other three who will likely get selected.

Gonzaga guard Jordan Mathews and Syracuse wing Andrew White will also be in the workout.

Swanigan, a 6-foot-9, 246-pound forward, spent many of his formative years in Salt Lake City before moving to Indiana in middle school. He became a McDonald's All-American and had a breakout sophomore campaign at Purdue last season after losing a bunch of weight, averaging 18.5 points and 12.5 rebounds per game for the Boilermakers.

He is slotted at No. 41 in the latest DraftExpress mock.

Evans is a player who has been linked to Utah in many mock drafts. He was measured at the draft combine at less than 6 feet tall, but he averaged 19.2 points, 6.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game for the Cowboys as a sophomore last season. He is No. 34 in the latest DraftExpress mock.

After three seasons at Division II Colorado-Colorado Springs, the 6-3, 190-pound White played for the Buffaloes his senior season and excelled, averaging 18.1 points per game. He's also risen up draft boards after a strong combine performance and is currently in the No. 33 slot on DraftExpress.

The 21-year-old Lessort is listed at 6-9 and 250 pounds. He plays for a club team in France and is No. 36 on DraftExpress.

Mathews averaged 10.6 points per game as a senior for the Bulldogs, finishing his career there after three years at Cal, while Andrew White led the Orange last season in scoring, averaging 18.5 points per game.
