Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! ICYMI from late last week, Daniel Ochefu swung by the local CBS station and guest-starred for some highlights and gave an update on his future. He's already signed with an agency and should have some NBA workouts in the coming weeks. Good for you, big fella!
Also, doesn't seem like Josh Hart got too many good reviews from the Combine, That's an arena where on-court performance doesn't help many other than a select few, so I'm giving it a whatever.
