Davidson junior Hyunjung Lee on Wednesday was among the prospects that participated in a pre-draft workout with the Charlotte Hornets, the team announced.

Lee, who was born in South Korea, was named to the All-Atlantic-10 first team after averaging 15.8 points, six rebounds and 1.9 assists on 38.1% shooting from 3-point range. He finished eighth in the conference in scoring and fourth in 3s (80).

The 6-foot-8 forward is regarded as one of the top shooters in the draft this year. He became just the 11th Division I player last year to shoot 50% from the field, 40% from 3-point range and 90% from the free-throw line.

Lee is looking to become just the second-ever Korean NBA player.

In addition to Lee, Charlotte also hosted NZ Breakers guard Hugo Besson, Gran Canaria forward Khalifa Diop, Boston University guard Javante McCoy, Gonzaga guard Andrew Nembhard and Yannick Nzosa of Unicaja (Spain) on Wednesday.

The Hornets enter the draft with the 13th, 15th (first round) and 45th pick (second round). Charlotte has previously hosted several prospects of late, including Ochai Agbaji, Tari Eason and Jaden Hardy among others.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
