Thursday night in Brooklyn, New York, former Ohio State star Aaron Craft was not selected by an NBA team in the 2014 NBA Draft. But you know what? We all knew that was coming, unfortunately. The real question we were all prepared to ask ourselves was what would be next for the former Buckeye as he continues his professional journey, despite not being drafted?
Well on Friday, less than 24 hours after the draft, that question was answered as Craft himself announced that he had signed on to play for both the Philadelphia 76ers and Golden State Warriors in the Summer Leagues this year.
Grateful for the opportunity to play in summer league for the 76ers and Golden State! Time to go to work and get after it! #LetsGo

Again, we knew that the chances of Craft getting selected by an NBA team were very slim. Are the scouts right? Does Aaron’s game not translate to the next level?
You know what, maybe they’re right. Maybe Craft was just built to be the monster star that he was in Columbus and the Big Ten, and that’s it.
At least, though, he will get the chance to prove not only those naysayer scouts wrong, but some of us wrong as well.
Go get ‘em, Aaron!
