UNDRAFTED, Ep. 5 – Robert Covington (VIDEO)
The journey begins…
Last month, 60 players fulfilled their dream of getting drafted to the NBA. Countless others remained undrafted and will be forced to find an alternative route to the League. They will fight their way through grueling team workouts and intense summer league games for the few remaining slots on an NBA roster.
UNDRAFTED will follow the journey of six players who began their quest at the historic Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (PIT), whose alumni include Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, Dave Cowens, John Stockton, Scottie Pippen, Tim Hardaway, Derek Fisher and Jeremy Lin. The series continues with Tennessee State’s Robert Covington, who averaged 12.4 points, 5 rebounds and 2.4 steals at Orlando Pro Summer League and recently came to terms with the Rockets.
This web series—brought to you by Pro Hoop Strength—begins with a profile and game breakdown of six players from the PIT class of 2013, as they pursue their basketball dreams. Who’s the next PIT legend?
