Former Southern Miss basketball star Dwayne Davis didn't get picked in the NBA Draft Friday night, but he has been given a shot to earn a spot on an NBA team.
Davis will compete in the NBA Summer League as a member of the Golden State Warriors' squad, he confirmed Friday via text message.
The summer league will last from July 12-22 and will take place in Las Vegas, including many of the players picked in Friday's draft.
Davis improved his standing as a potential pro basketball player with a strong summer that included a spot on the all-tournament team in the Portsmouth Invitational.
Never miss a local story.
Davis earned first-team All-Conference USA this past season after averaging 16.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in his senior season.
