Despite not currently holding a selection, the Toronto Raptors are doing their due diligence leading up to the 2018 NBA Draft, which takes place on Thursday, June 21.

The Raptors have held three pre-draft workouts in the past four weeks, bringing in 18 draft hopefuls. If the team is unable to move into the draft, a number of these players could become available as undrafted free agents to fill out Toronto's summer league roster.

2018 Sixth Man of the Year finalist Fred VanVleet earned a spot with the Raptors as an undrafted free agent.

The Raptors recently brought in six players for a pre-draft workout on Thursday, June 14. Here's more on each of the prospects…
