But (Josh) Selby hasn’t found life after college basketball too distressing even though he’s not sure when he might be able to sign his first NBA contract. Instead of looking for a place to live in Memphis and preparing for training camp, Selby has managed to crisscross the country to create a buzz with his performances in several NBA-caliber exhibition games.
He had a 42-point, seven-assist outing in one game last month at the so-called “lockout” league in Las Vegas. Selby has also toured with Carmelo Anthony’s Baltimore-based squad, picking up highlights and high praise from established NBA players along the way.
(Agent Andy) Miller, who represents high-profile players such as Chauncey Billups and Kevin Garnett, said one of his main duties was to secure disability and health insurance for Selby. Managing Selby’s basketball development has been just as important because of his client’s youth and inexperience, according to Miller.
“Our mindset was how can we put him in the best position without exploiting him?” Miller said. “He’s like a summer league All-Star player with the amount of exhibition games he’s played in. We’re maximizing the situation out of the circumstances.”
