Former Mizzou Grad Invited To Warriors Training Camp

The Golden State Warriors are adding 3 players to the competition for the last roster spot on a lineup that could make history. One of those players is Phil Pressey.

After graduating from the University of Missouri, Pressey wasn’t drafted in 2013 and has since bounced around the NBA and D-League. He played in 75 games with the Boston Celtics as a rookie in 2013-2014, but has played in less and less games each season since then. He played in 14 games last season for the Philadelphia 76ers, but was waived in December.

For his career, he’s shooting just 34.1% from the field and 25.4% from 3-point range. On a positive note, he does average 7.7 assists per game for his career.

Pressey, in my opinion, is probably the least likely to get the spot but, as we all know, anything can happen.
