Utah Jazz Press Release
SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Valley University's Nick Thompson has been invited to a pre-draft workout with the Utah Jazz on Monday at the Zion's Bank Basketball Center. He will workout along with Indiana's Cody Zeller.
"This is a wonderful experience and opportunity for Nick to display his skiills in a controlled practice setting," said UVU head coach Dick Hunsaker. "The Jazz coaches, scouts and player personnel have a proven track record among the best in the game."
Thompson was an honorable mention All-Great West Conference selection and was also named to the league's All-Newcomer Team in 2012-13. The versatile foward averaged just under 10 points and eight rebounds per game while leading the Great West in assists.
He became the first player in the program's NCAA Division I history to record a triple-double with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists in a win over Austin Peay in December.
