Julius Mays is a long shot to get to the NBA.

But he might have taken a step closer with his performance in 5-on-5 workouts in front of NBA general managers on Thursday.

Mays - who played at point guard - scored 17 points in 24 minutes, according to Adam Zagoria, while matched up on former Baylor point guard Pierre Jackson.

"He played so well that people are probably wondering why I didn't play him at point guard," tweeted John Calipari, who flew up to attend the workout. "Couldn't be more proud of Julius."
