3 NBA Teams Have Worked Out Kansas Star Frank Mason III Twice

Kansas star Frank Mason III is one of the premier older players in tomorrow's NBA Draft.

Mason was one of just two payers at the NBA combine under 6-feet tall, and at 23 he's older than most of his fellow prospects.

However, as anyone who watched a minute of college hoops last season can tell you, Mason can really ball.

As a senior, the national player of the year averaged 20.9 points, 5.2 assists, and 4.2 rebounds, and shot an impressive 49-percent from the floor and 47.1-percent from three. He has also impressed with his shot in a workout posted to Twitter.

Three different teams have worked out Mason ahead of tomorrow's draft, according to Sports Illustrated's Jake Fischer: the Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, and Sacramento Kings.

Orlando has picks at No. 6, No. 25, No. 33, and No. 35, giving them ample spots to potentially take Mason, who is probably a second-rounder. Oklahoma City's only pick is at No. 21, though teams can often buy their way back into the late-first or second rounds. Sacramento currently holds the No. 5, No. 10, and No. 34 picks, and are very likely to take a point guard, with De'Aaron Fox being a strong option with that first pick.

For Kansas fans trying to figure out where their favorite 2017 superstar may land, these seem like three legit possibilities, although anything can happen at the NBA Draft.
