The 2023 NBA draft is less than a month away, which means pre-draft visits and workouts have ramped up.

The Oklahoma City Thunder own the draft picks at No. 12, No. 37 and No. 50, which creates a wide range of prospects they could select at those spots.

Former Texas guard Sir’ Jabari Rice joins the long list of prospects who’ve presumably met and/or worked out for the Thunder, as he posted on his Instagram story he is in OKC for a probable pre-draft visit.

The 24-year-old played five college seasons from 2018 to 2023 — where his first four seasons were with New Mexico State before he transferred to Texas for his final college season in 2022-23.

In 38 games last season, Rice averaged 13 points on 46.4% shooting, 3.5 rebounds and two assists. He also shot 37.1% from 3 on 4.5 attempts.

Rice is viewed as a late second-round pick on most projections, which means he could be an option for the Thunder at No. 50. He could also be available in undrafted free agency.

The 2023 NBA draft is scheduled for Thursday, June 22. A full list of prospects who’ve met with the Thunder can be read here.
