Awesome that JD is getting NBA workouts:

JD had a solid game with 10 points to lead the Nuggets bench against the Boston Celtics in Summer League. He hits a 3 and then a couple layups in these highlights just after the 5:20 mark:

That's really cool. It's also nice that there are established leagues in Europe the one can make decent money at if the NBA dreams don't work out (and their fans are so much better).

Looks like he did not make the Nuggets roster, which of course is too bad. I saw on his twitter page he will be playing in Spain, so best of luck to him there!

Former Bear and Big Sky MVP Jordan Davis signed with a Spanish team called UCAM Murcia. The team plays in Liga ACB, the top professional basketball division of the Spanish basketball league.

One of JD's teammates will be 18-year old Alex Antetokounmpo, youngest brother of NBA superstar Giannis "The Greek Freak" Antetokounmpo. Alex has chosen to play professionally in Europe over a D1 scholarship in the US.
