Tavarius Shine, who played at Oklahoma State from 2014-18, has returned to the state he played college ball in for a pre-draft workout.

Shine scored a workout with the Oklahoma City Thunder before Thursday’s NBA Draft. His workout coming that late probably doesn’t provide the best outlook on Shine’s draft stock, but him getting a workout at all is impressive after his single season overseas.

Shine’s final season at OSU was his best. He averaged 9.7 points and 3.5 rebounds as a junior. He had a season of eligibility remaining after receiving a medical redshirt for the 2016-17 season after a back injury ended his season only six games in, but he had graduated and chose to pursue a professional career.

Shine played this past season at BC Lulea in Sweden. There, average 12.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 38 games played. He also shot 61 percent from the field.
