NEW YORK — Despite a snub from the NBA Draft Combine, St. John’s sophomore guard Shamorie Ponds intends to carry on with the draft process and has several workouts coming up this weekend.
The 6-foot-1 Ponds has already worked out for the Boston Celtics and has the Nets Thursday-Friday, and then the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday-Saturday, his father told ZAGSBLOG.
“I think the [Combine] list was solid,” said Ponds, referring to the 69-man list issued Monday by the NBA that included 18 players from Duke, Kentucky, Kansas and Villanova but none from St. John’s or Seton Hall. “But I definitely think I should have been invited, I am still waiting this process out until the last day, May 30.”
