Former Ohio State Buckeyes point guard Aaron Craft went undrafted this past June, but as we all knew, that wasn’t going to stop him from working all out to achieve his dream of becoming an NBA player. He worked his butt off throughout the Summer League, and that work has apparently paid off.
Craft announced on his twitter account on Wednesday that he has signed a contract with the Golden State Warriors.

Craft spent a lot of time this summer with the Warriors, and to the surprise of virtually none, he became a favorite of new Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. Back in August, Kerr spoke pretty glowingly about Craft, and hinted that this signing could be coming.
“We love Aaron’s competitiveness and his defense and his energy and his intelligence,” Kerr said back in August. “He sort of embodies what we want to be and what we’re becoming as a franchise.
“Whether he’s good enough or not, we’ll see, but we like the idea of bringing him to camp and possibly sending him to Santa Cruz to work on his game. But he impressed us in summer league, and he earned a spot in camp for sure.”
