Former Indiana forward Will Sheehey wasn’t selected in Thursday’s NBA draft, but he’ll still get a shot to play in the NBA.
After working out for 10 teams in the pre-draft process, Sheehey had some second round interest, but didn’t hear his name called.
He’ll now have to play his way onto a roster and he could get that chance beginning in the NBA summer league with the New York Knicks, according to his high school coach, Adam Ross.
“Sagemont’s Will Sheehey will play for the NY Knicks in #NBASummerLeague,” Ross wrote on Twitter. “Chasing that dream. Don’t bet against him.”
The Knicks begin summer league play on Friday, July 11 at the Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas. Several games will be broadcast live on NBA TV.
As a senior at Indiana, Sheehey averaged 11.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per game and shot 33 percent from 3-point range.
He finished his career in Bloomington with 1,120 career points.
