Former Maryland center Damonte Dodd is scheduled to work out for the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday morning, the team announced Friday afternoon.

Dodd was a four-year player at Maryland, earning the starting center job in his senior season and parts of his junior year. While he was an integral part of Mark Turgeon’s lineup and a solid defensive anchor and shot blocker for the Terps, he hasn’t been one of the Terps thought to have NBA potential.
Dodd hasn’t been listed in any mock drafts, but perhaps that could change with a good workout in Philadelphia. The 76ers have four second-round picks—Nos. 36, 39, 46 and 50. Even so, Dodd may have a better chance at landing himself on an NBA roster as an undrafted free agent who finds himself in the right place at the right time.
Melo Trimble also worked out for the 76ers a couple weeks ago. He and his Maryland teammate will find out their NBA futures during or after the draft on June 22.
