The Los Angeles Lakers have worked out Cal State Fullerton guard Tre’ Coggins as they continue to prepare for the 2017 NBA Draft. The Lakers are one of several teams to show interest in Coggins, including the Utah Jazz, a source with knowledge of the situation told Silver Screen and Roll.

Coggins helped steer the Titans to a third-place finish in the Big West this season while leading the conference in scoring (17.5 points per game) while making 35.3 percent of his conference-leading 8.3 3-pointers per game.

The senior guard is not ranked in Draft Express’ top-100 draft prospects, and the Lakers don’t have a second-round pick in this year’s draft, meaning that Coggins is likely being worked out by teams for a chance to make a summer league roster and the opportunity to play his way into a training camp invite.

After the workout, shooting coach Olin Simplis posted a photo of Coggins with Los Angeles Lakers President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson on Instagram:
