Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph realized that dream in the 2011 NBA Draft going fourth and 29th respectively with Myck Kabongo expecting to join them the following year – that never happened, but Thompson believes the story isn’t over yet for the once heralded prospect. “It’s definitely been tough,” Thompson told NBA.com. “If you’ve followed me, Myck and Cory we were kind of like the three amigos. All playing for Grassroots and having success at the AAU level and then all of us committing to Texas.
The 26-year-old has a chance to continue the grind back to prominence with the Raptors 905, a team that’s known around the league for player development and that’s something Thompson sees as a plus for one of his Longhorn amigos. “I think for him to go overseas and kind of just recalibrate his mind and kind of re-focus it’s going to be great for his development,” Thompson continued. “For him to be able to get a chance to do it now with the Raptors 905 is great.”
