Hunter Tyson – F – Clemson – 6-foot-8 – 215lbs

If there’s one thing these early workout attendees have largely had in common, it is experience and Clemson’s Hunter Tyson is no different as a fifth-year senior who notched 34 starts this past season for the Tigers.

Tyson averaged 15.3 points on 47.9% shooting from the floor and knocked down 40.5% of his threes adding 9.6 rebounds, and 1.5 assists en route to an All-ACC selection this year.

He’s also a good free-throw shooter sinking 83.8% of his attempts.

Tyson will join four of the others on this list in attending the 2023 NBA G League Elite Camp on May 13 and May 14 in Chicago at Wintrust Arena including Mayer, Reeves, our final participant for Wednesday’s workout.

Alex Fudge – F – Florida – 6-foot-8 – 185lbs

Before he transferred to Florida, Alex Fudge spent a season at LSU. Despite the change in scenery, the sophomore’s production is still light for this draft cycle. He averaged 3.3 points and 3.2 boards in his lone season on the Bayou.

This past year, in slightly more minutes, he put up 5.8 points and 4.5 rebounds but the most concerning part is that his efficiency fell as his volume increased. After shooting 42.4% overall and 28.6% from deep with the Tigers, he shot 39.7% from the floor and 32.9% from three this past season for the Gators.

He especially struggled down the stretch shooting just 29.4% of his looks overall across his final six games including the postseason and missed each of his last 13 deep looks.
