VCU 3-point star, Troy Daniels, will get another shot at the rims of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, this time as an NBA hopeful working out for all 30 NBA teams in the buildup to the 2013 NBA Draft.
Daniels hit a VCU record 124 3-pointers this season, then followed that effort with a primetime College Slam 3-Point Championship title on ESPN. The Roanoke native’s 3-point prowess punched his ticket to the event alongside 40-plus other college players.
“It’s really humbling for me to get such a tremendous opportunity,” Daniels said in a VCU press release. “I want to go up there and do whatever I can to show my abilities. This is a credit to all my teammates and coaches for putting in the work right alongside me.”
Daniels hopes to join VCU legends Larry Sanders and Eric Maynor as a third VCU player to represent the Rams currently in the NBA.
This is fourth time in the past five seasons that at least one VCU player has earned a workout with an NBA team.
VCU big man Juvonte Reddic is currently projected as a second round pick for the 2014 NBA Draft, so expect that streak to grow.
