Ashton Gibbs Rumors
Six days out from Thursday’s draft, the Wolves will bring six players — all of them second-round prospects — to Target Center on Friday. They’re bringing back Baylor forward Quincy Acy and Long Beach State point guard Casper Ware from those group workouts attending by all NBA teams at Target Center three weeks ago. They’re also bringing in Pitt guard Ashton Gibbs, Campbell University forward Eric Griffin, Alabama Birmingham forward Cameron Moore and Long Beach State forward T.J. Robinson.
Ashton Gibbs is returning to Pitt. After evaluating his chances of being selected in next month’s NBA Draft, Gibbs said Saturday he will come back to Pitt for his senior season. Shortly after the end of the season, Gibbs, a junior guard, said he would consider making himself available for the draft. He did not hire an agent, thus retaining his eligibility under NCAA rules. Gibbs, an honorable mention Associated Press All-American, pulled out with only hours to spare — the draft’s early-entry withdrawal deadline is Sunday. “The NBA can wait a year,” Gibbs said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing the success that we’ve established here at Pitt and finish my collegiate career with all of my teammates and fellow senior Nasir Robinson. It will also be extra special to earn my degree.”
