Grinding for a 10-Day Contract | The Players' Tribune: "It wasn’t a huge surprise that I didn’t get drafted. It stung, but it wasn’t devastating. I always knew my road to the NBA would be long and winding. I woke up the next day motivated as hell.
I didn’t have any team workouts lined up. I didn’t have any real connections with agents. I had just won an NCAA title with Duke, but I wasn’t a big-time prospect. One thing I’ve always had is self-awareness about what I do well on the basketball court. I’m a defensive specialist. I hustle. I try to do the little things. I’m damn proud of those skills."
