BYU’s Eric Mika to work out for Utah Jazz on Sunday

BYU’s Eric Mika will be one of six players participating in a pre-draft for the Utah Jazz on Sunday, the team announced Saturday afternoon.

Mika declared for the draft in late March but did not hire an agent. Now the Lone Peak alum will have the chance to work out for the home team.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound post player is coming off a season where he averaged 20.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. He had 17 double-doubles during the season and 12 games with three-plus blocks.

Mika will participate in the NBA draft combine May 9-14 in Chicago after recently receiving an invitation to the event. He has until May 24 to withdraw from the draft to maintain college eligibility. He would be a junior at BYU in 2017-18 if he decides to return to college.

The other participants in Sunday’s Jazz workout include UCLA guard Aaron Holiday, Florida State guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes, LSU wing Antonio Blakeney, Georgetown wing L.J. Peak and Michigan big Moritz Wagner.
