VCU's George auditions for Warriors

This notice came in from Phil Stanton at Virginia Commonwealth University:

Former VCU forward Nick George will play with the Golden State Warriors in the Vegas Summer League. As George was not selected in the recent NBA draft, he hopes to sign as a free agent. The Vegas Summer League begins play today. Among George’s teammates are Jose Juan Barea (Northeastern) and Will Bynum (Georgia Tech).

Last season George was fifth in the Colonial Athletic Association in scoring with 16.9 ppg. He was the top three-point shooter in the conference, hitting 47 percent of his attempts. Following the season he was named first-team All-CAA and All-State for the second consecutive year. A four-year starter for the Rams, George scored 1,546 career points (eighth on VCU’s all-time scoring list).

I’ve covered VCU basketball for several years, as a freelancer. George is one of my favorite players. His enthusiasm and determination are remarkable. He’s surely good enough to make a living at the game. Maybe in the NBA, maybe elsewhere. Wherever, he won’t complain.

Good luck with the blog.
