Former UNLV big man Goodluck Okonoboh is working out for the Charlotte Hornets tomorrow.

Okonoboh only played SIX games for UNLV in 2015, citing he was going to transfer, however he ended up declaring for the NBA Draft on April 10th.

In 2014-15, Okonoboh logged 26.7 minutes a game for the Rebels while averaging 5.7 points per game. Before leaving the program in 2015 Okonoboh was only averaging 15.2 minutes a game and a dip to scoring only 3.5 points per game.

Okonoboh was heavily recruited out of high school as he was known as one of the best rim protecters in the nation.

Included in this workout is Diamond Stone, Adam Smith, Tim Quarterman, Retin Obasohan and Montay Brandon. The Hornets hold just the 22nd pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. The draft is on June 23 in Brooklyn, New York.

Thursday's workout will take place on Charlotte's practice court.
