Selby was unable to participate in drills with other the invitees — center Brian Williams (Tennessee), forwards Denzell Bowles (James Madison), D’Mario Curry (Lincoln Memorial) and Delroy James (Rhode Island) and guard Cory Joseph (Texas) — because of a slight pull in his right quadriceps suffered during a workout yesterday for the Charlotte Bobcats. He said he was sitting out only today and that the ailment wouldn’t prevent him from future workouts. “Very frustrating,” said Selby, who watched the proceedings from a folding chair on the auxiliary court. “I wanted to work out for the Wizards just because they’re so close to my home. I would love to come here, so it’s frustrating.”
Corey Joseph Rumors
Cory Joseph’s tenure at the University of Texas may be short-lived. The Pickering native and Longhorns’ freshman point-guard is going to test the waters at the next level, having declared for the 2011 NBA draft. Joseph, and two other Texas teammates — sophomore swingman Jordan Hamilton and freshman forward Tristan Thompson of Brampton — made the announcement last Friday. Despite the declaration, because Joseph hasn’t signed with an agent yet, he will maintain his NCAA eligibility, leaving the door open for him to return to Texas for a sophomore campaign.
