Terquavion Smith did not hear his name called at the NBA Draft on Thursday night—a surprising development considering where he was ranked by various experts. He’s Jonathan Givony’s highest-rated undrafted prospect.
The Hornets had multiple opportunities in the second round to grab Baby T but passed every time, because of course they did. It’s the Hornets. I never know what they’re doing over there.
It’s not all bad news for T, though. He agreed to a two-way contract with the Philadelphia 76ers late last night, which will provide him the opportunity to make a team that is already built to win in the playoffs, not to mention play alongside Joel Embiid.
Also, the Sixers did not have a single draft pick last night. Hey, same; sports franchises—they’re just like us! That leaves the back end of the roster a bit more wide open than usual, though T will most likely begin the season with Philly’s G-League affiliate in, uh, let’s see here ... Delaware?
Well, you gotta start somewhere. And why not Wilmington (Delaware)?
