When the college basketball season ended, Will Sheehey was an extreme long shot to be drafted by an NBA team. When NBA workouts began last month, the odds were the same.
But Sheehey, as he always did at Indiana, has worked incredibly hard, and now he's put himself in position to make his dream a reality tonight.
In his latest mock draft, ESPN's Chad Ford has Sheehey being selected 59th overall by the Toronto Raptors. There are 60 total picks in the draft.
Sheehey worked out for 10 teams leading up to tonight's draft, including the New York Knicks on Wednesday. He also worked out for the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Clippers. Sheehey declined to name the other teams.
It'd be great to see Sheehey get a chance in the NBA. He certainly mixed things up in college and could likely play the same role well in the NBA. If nothing else, he'll make the regular guys earn it and work hard.
