Alex Poythress did not hear his name called on draft night, but that can be a good thing in some cases. Now he’s able to pick a situation rather than being stuck at the bottom of one roster, like Aaron Harrison did one year ago.
The key now is to show out in summer league and to keep working. The NBA dream is far from over for Alex.
Still, it’s a little heartbreaking for the young man who was once projected as a top-two pick.
