RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - While Justin Harper was celebrating on draft night, his counterpart from the crosstown team was not as happy. VCU's Jamie Skeen did not hear his name called during the NBA Draft, and now he'll have to wait to see if he gets invited to any team tryouts.
Just after the final pick at midnight, Skeen tweeted the following: "I guess I was not good enough ppl... Highly disappointed." Skeen had personal workout for many different teams, but knew if he was selected it would be one of the final selections in the second round. Unfortunately for Skeen, there was a run of international players taken in the second round, and many college players went undrafted.
After transferring from Wake Forest, the Charlotte native had a huge senior year at VCU. Skeen put himself on NBA radars by shooting extremely well for his size during the Rams run to the Final Four.
