Travis Wear Rumors

All NBA Players

Wear was eventually invited to play for the Atlanta Hawks in the Las Vegas Summer League. However, after just one game with Atlanta, Wear’s agent informed him that another team was interested in his services. That team was the New York Knickerbockers. Wear and his agent decided to immediately join the Knicks’ contingent out in Las Vegas. “I mean, yeah, (the Knicks) showed interest in me through the draft process, and they basically had their eyes open towards me,” Wear said. “It just so happen to work out that I was able to get picked up halfway through summer league. We switched to New York and it’s seemed to all work out since.”

When asked about his thought process before and after the draft, he admits he was disappointed, but he believed it all happened for a reason. “Yeah, we thought the (the second round) was a possibility for sure and that’s what I was hoping for,” Wear told Basketball Insiders. “Obviously that didn’t happen, but I mean I honestly wouldn’t change anything.” Wear also acknowledges that some people advised him to seek employment overseas, but he remained committed to his NBA dream. “Yeah, overseas was definitely an option, but I thought I could play here,” Wear said. “I thought I could play in the NBA. I thought my skill set would translate into this league.”
