Fuquan Edwin To Play In Summer League With The Thunder

The 2014 NBA Draft was one of the deepest drafts in recent history, as second round draft picks could pan out as great NBA players. With the draft being so deep, some of the nation’s top talent from College basketball went un-drafted. Guys like Aaron Craft from Ohio State, Chane Behanan from Louisville, and Keith Appling from Michigan State all were top players in the nation who went un-drafted. Among that list is the 2013-14 Big East Defensive Player of the Year and former Seton Hall swingman Fuquan Edwin.

According to reports, Edwin will play his summer league ball with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Edwin averaged 14.4 points a game last year, and shot 51.2% from the floor. Edwin isn’t known for his ability to score the ball, though. The 6′ 6” SF is the all-time steals leader at Seton Hall, and is a great defender. The best comparison I can make for Edwin is former Thunder guard, DeAndre Liggins. Both posses a great feel for the game and play hard, wanting to guard the other teams best scorer.

Will Edwin make the roster? Probably not. With Andre Roberson and Grant Jerrett already in the organization, it will be tough to make room for the former Seton Hall Pirate. However, with a good performance in the Orlando Summer League, and a possible trade here and there in free agency, you never know.
