SALT LAKE CITY — Three former Utah college basketball players and the older brother of the "Greek Freak," Milwaukee's popular rookie, highlight a list of 12 players who will work out for the Jazz on Friday.

Weber State guard Davion Berry, who helped the Wildcats make the NCAA tournament, Utah State center Jarred Shaw and ex-University of Utah athlete Shawn Glover will be the first former Beehive State players to try out for the Jazz this spring. Glover played for the Utes from 2009-11 before transferring to Oral Roberts.

Group A: Shaw, Michigan State guard Keith Appling, Arizona State guard Jahii Carson, Northwestern swingman Drew Crawford, Nevada guard Jerry Evans Jr. and Pittsburgh forward Talib Zanna.

Group B: Berry, Glover, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Giannis's older brother who played in the D-League last season, North Carolina forward James Michael McAdoo, Stanford forward Dwight Powell and Alabama guard Trevor Releford.
