The 2018 NBA Draft has come to a close. 60 names were called from DeAndre Ayton (#1) to Kostas Antetokounmpo (#60), but Drew Eubanks was not one of them.
Eubanks worked out for a multitude of teams leading up to the draft including: the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns. Eubanks has signed with the San Antonio Spurs to play on their NBA summer league team, but was always a long shot to get drafted into the NBA. He will continue to try and achieve his ultimate goal of playing in the NBA in the coming months and years.

What’s next for Eubanks after summer league? If he doesn’t impress an NBA team he can either sign with a professional team overseas or stay locally and sign a deal with a G-League team. It’s easy to be angry that Eubanks potentially “wasted” his final year of college eligibility, but either way he is going to ink a deal somewhere (making actual money to play basketball) and he’ll be able to focus on basketball full-time.
