    Maryland sophomore guard Kevin Huerter continues his NBA workouts leading up to the May 30 deadline to withdraw from the Draft and return to campus.

    Huerter worked out for the Lakers on Friday and has the Jazz on Monday, as first reported by ZAGSBLOG. He also worked for Boston, Atlanta and Brooklyn.

    “I made shots today but I think that’s something I’m trying to do as I go through this process, is show I can do more than shoot and get to the basket and get guys open shots and create for other people,” Huerter said after his Lakers workout.

    Huerter impressed NBA scouts at last week’s NBA Draft Combine in Chicago, going for 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers) in his first game. He also posted a shuttle run of 2.96 seconds.

    The Clifton Park, N.Y., native averaged 14.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season for the Terps.

    He’s currently projected as the No. 20 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, per ESPN.com.
