Former WVU guards Erik Stevenson and Kedrian Johnson have completed a workout with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday. Stevenson and Johnson both recently wrapped up their collegiate careers at West Virginia.

This was Johnson’s first NBA workout while Stevenson participated with the Washington Wizards on June 7.

Stevenson and Johnson both wrapped up their final year of eligibility at West Virginia, helping the Mountaineers return to the NCAA Tournament in March.

Stevenson averaged 15.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists on 43 percent shooting from the field. The fifth-year senior played his best towards the end of the year, recording five-straight 20-point-plus games at the end of February. Stevenson is pursuing a professional career in basketball. The Lacey, Wa. native participated in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in April, competing in-front of scouts.

Johnson played three seasons at West Virginia, coming from Temple College (JUCO). Johnson worked his way up the depth chart, going from playing behind Miles McBride to starting at point guard for two seasons. The Texas native averaged 11.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.8 steals during his fifth season of eligibility. Johnson played his best game at the end of this past season, averaging 14.9 points in the final month. Johnson finished his career at WVU with a career-high 27 points against Maryland in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Johnson is currently signed up to play for Best Virginia in this year’s edition of the TBT.
