With two weeks left before the NBA Draft, the Utah Jazz will take a look at one of the top point guard prospects available Wednesday when they work out Lehigh's C.J. McCollum.

The 6-foot-3 McCollum will work out with Weber State guard Scott Bamforth and is the highest-profile player to participate in a pre-draft workout with the Jazz. The athletic guard, who frequently draws comparisons to Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard, averaged 25.9 points and 5 rebounds in 11 games before missing the rest of the season with a broken foot. McCollum is generally regarded as the No. 2 point guard prospect in the draft, behind Michigan's Trey Burke.

The Jazz do not have a point guard under contract for next season.

Bamforth, a 6-foot-2 guard from Albuquerque, averaged 14.8 points as a senior with the Wildcats.
