Former UTPB basketball player Daeshon Francis received an invite to an NBA G-League training camp earlier this week.
He will be attending the Iowa Wolves (Minnesota Timberwolves affiliate) training camp.
First-year head coach Josh Newman said he is excited for Francis.
“Obviously Daeshon representing UTPB is fantastic. Having the chance to play in the best league in the country hopefully one day is a great story,” Newman said.
Newman said it is all about the “fit” for a player. He stressed the importance of finding the right basketball program for any specific player.
