Remember Sean May? He worked out for the Knicks on Wednesday.

It's been nearly three years since Sean May last played in the NBA, but the former first-round pick could be gearing for a comeback. On Wednesday, the free agent forward worked out for the New York Knicks, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

May was one of three players to work out for the club, along with D.J. White and Bobby Brown. It's unclear whether New York plans to offer contracts to any of the players.

The 13th overall pick in the 2005 draft by the Charlotte Bobcats, May dealt with a number of injuries over five years before heading overseas in 2010. Most recently, he's been playing with Paris-Levallois Basket in the French capital, but he also spent time in Croatia, Italy and Turkey.

A physical guy listed at 6'9 and 266 pounds, May was a star at the University of North Carolina before going pro. He helped lead the Tar Heels to a national championship in 2005, earning Final Four Most Outstanding Player honors after recording 26 points and 10 rebounds in the title game against Deron Williams and Illinois.

Due to the numerous injuries, May appeared in just 119 NBA games over five years, mostly with the Bobcats. He spent the 2009-10 season with the Sacramento Kings, but again battled injuries to earn limited playing time. Overall, he's averaged 6.9 points and four rebounds in about 16 minutes per contest.
