RICHMOND, Va. – It's been almost two months since Troy Daniels and his VCU men's basketball teammates took over the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and marched to the Atlantic 10 Championship game.
Daniels liked it so much that he's headed back there on May 22 and 23, this time he'll be shooting in front of all 30 NBA teams at an open workout in preparation for June's draft.
"It's really humbling for me to get such a tremendous opportunity," Daniels said. "I want to go up there and do whatever I can to show my abilities. This is a credit to all my teammates and coaches for putting in the work right alongside me."
The Roanoke, Va. Native will be among a group of 40-plus collegiate players, including 10 shooting guards. Temple's Khalif Wyatt is the only other A-10 player scheduled to be at the workout.
Daniels is coming off a record-breaking senior season in which he knocked down 124 3-pointers, the highest single season total in school history and the third highest in Atlantic 10 history. He finished with 251 treys in his career, which ranks second-most in program history.
This marks the fourth time in the past five seasons that at least one VCU players earned a workout with an NBA squad.
