Hard work pays off, folks.

Ohio State's Aaron Craft went undrafted earlier this year, but was able to secure two Summer League stints with the Philadelphia 76ers and Golden State Warriors.

With the Warriors Summer League team, Craft averaged 7.4 points, a team-leading 2.4 assists, a team-leading 2.60 steals and 22 minutes per game during the five game stretch.

Craft's work earned the praise of Steve Kerr, Golden State's new coach. Kerr backed that praise up with an invite to Warrior's training camp. 

Craft, forward James McAdoo and forward Mitchell Watt — all three members of Golden State's Summer League team — signed with the Golden State Warriors, according to NBA.com.

While the contract details are unknown at this time, a congratulations are in order for Craft. He said before the draft he'd travel whatever road needed to play professional basketball, and it looks like he's done just that.
