Two Former MSU Hoopsters Sign NBA Contracts
Two more Michigan State basketball stars will have an opportunity to live out their NBA dreams, even if they weren't selected in Thursday's draft. According to the Lansing State Journal, Lansing native Bryn Forbes has agreed to an undrafted free agent contract with the San Antonio Spurs and will participate in the team's summer league season. Former Mr. Basketball Matt Costello will also participate in the NBA Summer League after signing an undrafted free agent contract with the Atlanta Hawks.
Forbes and Costello join Denzel Valentine and Deyonta Davis in the NBA ranks. Valentine was selected 14th overall by the Chicago Bulls Thursday night, while Davis was passed on in the first round, ultimately selected 31st overall with the first pick of the second round. The Boston Celtics traded the draft rights to Davis to the Memphis Grizzlies after selecting him.
