For Alex Kirk, the chance to play a significant role early in his career was a big deal. "I might have the chance to be really good there and they'll get me to where I can go to the next level. I'll get a lot of experience because I'll be able to play early."
Kirk attended the NBAPA Top 100 Camp in June and worked his way into the Scout.com Top 100 this spring. A strong passer, he's shown signs of being a very good scoring threat with touch to mid-range. He's a significant signee for Steve Alford's crew.
"I'd like to become a bigger, stronger player and helping become a good teammate."
