West Virginia guard Taz Sherman is set to work out for the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, first reported by Kevin Chouinard of

The Hawks will also be hosting MarJon Beauchamp (G-League Ignite), Tyler Burton (Richmond), Nate Johnson (Xavier), Charlie Moore (Miami-FL) and Aminu Mohammed (Georgetown).

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.

For a West Virginia tie, Da’Sean Butler is the current assistant coach of the College Park Skyhawks, the Hawks’ G-League team.

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