Auburn guard Sharife Cooper and forward JT Thor were among the prospects that worked out on Friday with the Charlotte Hornets, the team announced.

Cooper was named to the SEC All-Freshman team after averaging 20.2 points, 8.1 assists, 4.3 rebounds and one steal in 12 games. He was one of seven players to average at least 20 points and eight assists over the last 25 years.

Meanwhile, Thor averaged 9.4 points, five rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots in 27 games played last season with the Tigers. He finished as one of five freshmen in the country to register at least 250 points, 100 rebounds and 30 blocks.

In addition to Cooper and Thor, the Hornets also worked out Iowa forward Luka Garza, Howard center Makur Maker, international prospect Roko Prkacin, Tennessee guard Jaden Springer and UConn guard James Bouknight.

The Hornets have picks 11, 56 and 57 entering the draft, and each player they met with on Friday is projected to be in their range in the first round. Of course, workouts are hardly an indication of how a team will draft as organizations look to do their homework on as many prospects as possible.

The NBA draft is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 29.
