If the NBA folks are blunt with him, any chance he comes back?

Maybe he can carve up a nitch like Tony Allen or Michael Kidd Gilchrest.

He'll give it his best shot (no pun intended) like he always did for St. John's. If he doesn't make it, won't be because of lack of hard work.

Good luck Justin wherever your professional career takes you!

Superb young man and I'm glad we've had him as part of the program. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he'll see value in a year under the new coach, but if not I hope he rocks it at the NBA camps and find a great fit for next season.

Or Bruce Bowen - carved out a 13 year career as a defensive specialist; through hard work went from a 28% three point shooter in college to a 39% career three point shooter in NBA (only took wide open threes) with Spurs.
You never know….

he would need to bring a presence to the court like Joakim Noah, Shawn Marion, or even Dennis Rodman. he certainly has a better looking shot than those three, but you need to be a complete freak athlete on the court. I wish him the best. He certainly has a place in Europe if the NBA doesn't get on board with his skills.

Justin has got to be one of the most athletic guys I've seen play hoops. Ever.
And with his motor and spirit, there are no limits to what he may achieve.
I hope he aces it in these tryouts and convinces a team they need his skills.
Otherwise, I'm sure he'll succeed in Europe.
