Davidson forward Hyunjung Lee was among the prospects that worked out with the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, according to Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee.

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 in 34 games. He finished eighth in the conference in scoring and fourth in 3s (80).

The 6-foot-7 standout was also invited to compete in front of scouts, coaches and front-office executives at the NBA G League Elite Camp May 16-17 from Chicago, Illinois.

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

In addition to Lee, the Kings also brought in Alabama guard Jaden Shackelford, UCLA guard Johnny Juzang, Richmond forward Tyler Burton, Kentucky forward Keion Brooks and Virginia Tech forward Justyn Mutts on Tuesday.

The Kings enter the pre-draft process with picks No. 7, 37 and 49, respectively. Their workout on Tuesday was their first this year as they appear to be ramping up their draft preparations ahead of the combine next week.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
