Good for him. Seeing as most of the big names are opting out, it is a chance for hime to shine with the other bubble draftees. And if he does well and doesn't get drafted, he could atleast prove that he is talented enough to walk-on.

Good for Derek being invited. He might get invited to someone's summer camp as a free agent. I suppose with his sweet stroke he could conceivably end up on someone's bench even with his slight build (draftexpress lists him as 168!). Kind of like Steve Kerr. Does anyone else see that as an apt comparison?

Show them all up Drav.. you've got the heart and skills of a champion.

It looks like that was just a list of who they "suggested" be invited, not necessarily an official list...but hopefully he will get an official invite.

Three players who've already been announced as having accepted their invites are Reyshawn Terry, Zabian Dowdell and Derek Raivio.

Seems to me to be a bit more than that.

I like his competitive spirit.

I should read the ENTIRE article next time instead of scanning it...my bad. :doh:
