Former Oklahoma State star Jeffrey Carroll is hoping to continue his basketball career in the NBA and he may have a suitor close to home. The 6-6 guard, from Rowlett, Texas, worked out for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday.

The NBA Draft is next month and Carroll is certainly hoping to have his named called. He averaged 15.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game for the Cowboys, last season, as a senior. NBA Scouting Live has him projected as a potential second round pick.
After having two nondescript seasons in college basketball, Jeffrey Carroll finally had a breakthrough year, as he ended up being the leading scorer on his team, and he really shot the ball well as a junior.
He is a skilled offensive player that can score in any number of ways, and he will actively crash the glass. However, he can be too inconsistent of a player in games, as there are some games where he can really struggle to make jump shots.
Still, Carroll is an athletic, energetic swingman that can shoot the basketball, and he may project into a 3 and D role at the next level, as he could be a potential second round pick in 2018. – NBA Scouting Live
The Thunder may be looking to add depth at the guard position with Raymond Felton being an unrestricted free agent this summer and Alex Abrines becoming a restricted free agent next summer.
