The winningest player in Houston Cougars history, Fabian White Jr., worked out for the hometown Houston Rockets Tuesday, according to league sources.

White has also worked out for Denver, Sacramento, the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas, Memphis, and Phoenix as he waits for an NBA call.

White could potentially sneak into the back end of the second round, but is more likely to sign a free agent deal immediately after the draft.

Sources say multiple teams are interested in bringing him into summer league and fall camp.

He averaged 12.5 points per game while shooting 37.1 percent from three in an expanded role as a senior for the Cougars.

The Atascocita grad and versatile 6-foot-8 forward helped Houston win 121 in his time as a Cougar, the most in program history.

Bill Neff of SAGA Sports agency represents White.
