Ex-Mountaineer guard Taz Sherman has worked out with four more NBA teams as he prepares for his professional career. Sherman has recently worked out with the Charlotte Hornets, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings, sources told WV Sports Now.

Sherman has been hosted by the Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards in the prior weeks.

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.

Sherman was named to the All-Big 12 Second Team in 2022.

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 to return to West Virginia.

Sherman’s WVU teammate Gabe Osabuohien has been working out with various teams as well. The Canadian native has been hosted by the Charlotte Hornets, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards. Osabuohien plans on working out for the Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors, reported by Quinton Mayo.

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