Appearantly hard work does have its rewards as former Long Beach State
standout point guard Casper Ware find himself competing for a spot on the
Detroit Piston’s summer camp squad.
Although Ware’s was not one of the 60 names called during last week’s NBA draft, he did receive letters from the Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons and Houston Rockets interested in his services.
Ware wasn’t even watching the draft, but rather “working out at the gym and then chilled with my father and Uncle,” he said.
While all the offers sound good, Ware decided to accept the Piston’s invitation.
“The situation in Detroit just feels better,” Ware said. “There I have the best chance at making the roster.”
Although the Pistons are already stocked with point guards Rodney Stuckey, Brandon Knight and Will Bynum, Ware should be able to fit in.
With his shooting ability, Ware could be utilized as a shooting guard, a position the Pistons are very thin in, with only this years draft pick Kim English at that position.
Brooklyn already carry eight guards including Deron Williams, Jordan Farmer and Sasha Vuajich and this years draft pick Tyshawn Taylor.
The Rockets carry seven guards including this year’s draft pick Jeremy Lamb.
Ware heads to Orlando this week to compete for a spot on the
summer league roster.
