No one is projecting for Clemson seniors Demontez Stitt and Jerai Grant to be selected during the two-round NBA Draft, which will be held Thursday.

Both former Tigers have worked out for NBA teams, to generally positive reviews, and will likely have opportunities to compete for lineup spots as free agents.

Stitt worked out for his hometown Charlotte Bobcats earlier this month, and also participated in workouts with the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors.

Grant also worked out for the Bobcats, as well as for the Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards.

Duke’s Kyrie Irving is widely expected to be the No. 1 overall selection when the Cleveland Cavaliers announce their choice tonight.

Other ACC players being mentioned as likely first-rounders include Florida State’s Chris Singleton and Georgia Tech’s Iman Shumpert.

Maryland’s Jordan Williams, Boston College’s Reggie Jackson and Duke’s Nolan Smith are expected to be selected in the second round.

Other ACC players who worked out for NBA teams, according to nbadraft.net, include Jeff Allen and Mustapha Farrakhan of Virginia, Tracy Smith of NC State, Kyle Singler of Duke and Joe Trapani of Boston College.
