Ryan Thompson goes undrafted
My job as assistant sports editor of The Trentonian is busiest in the summer, and covering college sports has had to take a backseat to a number of other responsibilities.
Second, I wanted to pass along a link to Chris Melchiorre's story at Trentonian.com. Chris was in Cherry Hill for Rider's draft party and caught up with Tommy Dempsey, who told him the Broncs are "disappointed, but it's not the end of the line."
To that end, Thompson will head out in the next week or so -- maybe as early as Friday -- for more workouts. He'll have his eyes on a spot on an NBA summer league roster and, ultimately, in an NBA training camp.
If he's not on an NBA roster to open the season, the NBA Developmental League would be a likely option -- and probably Thompson's best route to the NBA.
