As first reported by The Athletic’s Josh Robbins, former West Virginia guard Taz Sherman will participate in a work out with the Washington Wizards on Tuesday.

Other players that are working out in Sherman’s group are Phlandrous Fleming Jr. (Florida), Jaden Hardy (G-League Ignite), Anthony Polite (Florida State), Collin Welp (UC-Irvine) and Isaiah Whaley (UConn).

Sherman has previously worked out with the Atlanta Hawks on June 1.

Sherman spent three years at West Virginia after transferring from Collin College, a JUCO in Texas. Sherman raised his point per game average over his three seasons averaging 5.3 points his junior year, 13.6 points his senior year and 17.7 in his fifth-year. The 6-foot-4 guard shot 40 percent from the field in his career. Sherman became the 55th Mountaineer in program history to record 1,000-career points back in February.

The former Mountaineer has been participating in many different events over the past two months, including the Reese’s All-Star Game in New Orleans during Final Four weekend. Last offseason, Sherman entered his name into the draft, but opted out to return to West Virginia.

The 2022 NBA Draft takes place on June 23 in Brooklyn.
