CDR Regrets Passing on Other Offers?
I spoke with (Chris) Douglas-Roberts on Thursday afternoon after practice.
You signed here late. What was the summer like for you, in terms of trying to get back on the radar of NBA teams?
CDR: It was a lot of things going on. We were talking with a lot of teams, and actually thought we were going to go to a certain team that I’m not going to name. But things kind of fell through. And because I didn’t go there, I passed up on other offers where I could have just signed right away and wouldn’t have been in this position.
Q: Where you’re pretty sure you’d have made the team?
CDR: Yeah. The situations — there were two situations I passed up — I could have walked into a deal. It wasn’t a situation like this, but we were kind of waiting for the other thing to unfold, and it kind of fell through. And it put me in this position I’m in now. But I’m definitely a firm believer that things happen for a reason.
