Dwayne Davis RumorsAll NBA Players
Dwayne Davis received training camp deals from a few NBA teams, but the Golden State Warriors’ summer league guard signed a one-year contract with Murcia of the Spanish ACB on Monday, a source told RealGM. Davis won’t hold an opt out in his deal, deciding to accept their offer of significant playing time and shifting his focus to pursue the NBA next season.
“Three people living in the car, not knowing where your next meal is going to come from, that was absolutely rough,” Davis said. “You know you have family members, but you don’t want to ask for help. I’m the type of person who keeps a lot to myself and if I don’t have it, I won’t go out of my way to ask for it. I’ll just try to get it myself.”
That Davis emerged from such poverty to arrive where he is today is so implausible even he still wonders how he managed to do it. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard escaped his hardscrabble Philadelphia neighborhood, became the first person in his family to earn a college degree and played so well in his lone season of Division I hoops at Southern Miss that he has caught the interest of NBA teams.
