As I wrote last week, David Lighty and Eric Dawson will be non-roster training camp invites. Andonis Thomas is likely to be another invite, although nothing is official at this point. Thomas has been working out in Atlanta this offseason. He was part of the Hawks summer league roster. The 6-foot-7 small forward, an undrafted free agent out of Memphis, appeared in three summer league games. He averaged 1.3 points and 0.3 rebounds in 9.7 minutes. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Villa Angela-St. Joseph and Ohio State graduate David Lighty could be on the verge of heading to Europe to continue his dream of playing professional basketball. Draftexpress.com reported Lighty signed to play with Cantu, an Italian team in the Euroleague, next season. However, when reached Wednesday afternoon for comment, Lighty said there is no deal in place yet. “Nothing final yet, but probably will know for sure by the end of the week,” Lighty replied in a text message.

Whether or not David Lighty makes it in the NBA, he's determined to do it on his own terms. That disappointment toward the end of the second round in last week's NBA draft, when players many of us had never heard of were selected and Lighty still wasn't picked? According to Lighty, several teams were calling his agent, Joe Bell, and were prepared to take him in the second round with one condition: The teams wanted him to play overseas for a year, then return the following season.

Lighty wasn't interested in that scenario. "Yes, that is true. (Teams) were going to draft me if I was willing to go (overseas), but my agent and I said we would stay here," said Lighty. Apparently, Lighty was not joking when he tweeted after last week's draft, "U will see me in the NBA I promise u that." Lighty confirmed Tuesday he has no intention of playing overseas. News-Herald
