Utah's Kyle Kuzma, David Collette to work out for Utah Jazz on Tuesday

Utah's Kyle Kuzma and David Collette will have their chance to show the Utah Jazz brass what they bring to the court.

Kuzma and Colette will join Kansas forward Landon Lucas, Idaho guard Victor Sanders, Chicago State guard Fred Sims Jr. and Croatia forward Nik Slavica for a predraft workout Tuesday at the the Zions Bank Basketball Center, the Jazz announced Monday.

The 6-foot-9 Kuzma already made the decision to stay in the 2017 NBA draft, announcing on May 3 he would hire an agent and forgo his final season of college eligibility. The forward earned All-Pac-12 honors while averaging a team-best 16.4 points and 9.3 rebounds as a junior last season for Utah.

Kuzma also participated in the NBA draft combine earlier this month.

The 6-foot-8 forward Collette has declared for the draft but hasn't hired an agent, giving him the option to return to school. After joining the Utes partway into the 2016-17 season, due to NCAA transfer rules, Collette averaged 13.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 22 games.

The deadline for players who have declared for the draft but choose to not hire an agent and return to school is this Wednesday. Collette would be a senior at Utah next season if he returns to school.

The 2017 NBA draft is June 22.
