Former Ohio guard D.J. Cooper will participate in his second NBA pre-draft workout with the Golden State Warriors on Monday, June 17.

Cooper’s agent Mike Naiditch confirmed to WOUB Sports that his client will be working out for the Warriors, whose backup point guard Jarrett Jack enters free agency this offseason.

Jack was the fourth-leading scorer on the Warriors last season, but Golden State might pass on resigning the 29-year-old in favor of a younger, cheaper backup point guard.

The Warriors have a solid core of young players that is led by Stephen Curry. They made an impressive run in the NBA playoffs before losing to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Golden State does not own any draft picks in the 2013 NBA Draft, but has been holding workouts for players that are expected to go late in the second round or undrafted.

Cooper worked out with the Portland Trail Blazers on May 31, and has received interest from Orlando, New York and Utah for other workouts, according to his agent.
