PHILADELPHIA — Between trying out for the U.S. U19 team and playing at the Under Armour All-America Camp, Shamorie Ponds has already had an eventful summer.
The rising sophomore guard from St. John’s played five-on-five this week in front of some 35 NBA scouts, and played well through the first two days of workouts.
“Yeah, it’s pretty exciting,” Ponds told me Thursday afternoon at Philadelphia University. “Just to showcase your talent in front of the next level I’m trying to be at, it’s a little nerve wracking but I’m trying. It’s going to be a job soon.”
