Tulsa shooting guard Justin Hurtt was among five players who reportedly had a pre-draft workout session with the Oklahoma City Thunder at the team's practice facility Wednesday.

According to, joining Hurtt were Florida forward Alex Tyus, Illinois forward Mike Davis, Michigan State guard Durrell Summers and Stanford guard Jeremy Green. Illinois forward Jereme Richmond was scheduled to participate, but he did not.

"On Wednesday I will be going to Oklahoma City for a workout and hope to prove that I am the best athlete in the draft," Tyus wrote in his diary for TheHoopsReport.

Kansas guard Josh Selby, Duke guard Nolan Smith, Butler forward Matt Howard, Texas guard Cory Joseph, Charleston guard Andrew Goudelock and Temple forward LaVoy Allen worked out for the Thunder last Friday.

A source told TheHoopsReport that Selby "was the best guard out there" and Goudelock "shot the hell out of the ball" and also claimed Richmond guard Kevin Anderson and Pittsburgh center Gary McGhee will work out for OKC on June 17.

The Thunder, which has the No. 24 overall pick in the NBA Draft on June 23, does not share information involving its pre-draft workouts.

Selby is projected as a late first-round pick, Smith as an early second-rounder and Goudelock as a late second-round pick.

Selby became the second player in KU history to leave after his freshman year, following the lead of former Putnam City High School standout Xavier Henry the previous season.
