Aaron Craft to Play for Philadelphia 76ers, Golden State Warriors Summer League Teams

Aaron Craft had said he'd do anything to earn a shot in the NBA, and now he has his chance.

Per 97.1 The Fan's Anthony Rothman, Craft's agent says Aaron will play for the Philadelphia 76ers in the July 5-11th session of the Summer League in Orlando, and then for the Golden State Warriors in the July 11-21st session in Las Vegas.

The biggest question surrounding Craft involved his offense. He worked on his awkward shooting motion with coach Keith Veney, eliminating an unsightly hitch that plagued Craft during his senior season. He shot 30 percent from three-point range last season.

“Obviously I’m not where I need to be, but I feel really comfortable with the improvements,” he said after a workout with the Jazz.

His field-goal percentage fluctuated between 50 and 42 percent and his three-point percentage never rose above 38 percent. Craft’s career totals were 8.9 points per game on 45.9 percent shooting from the field and 33.3 percent from long range.

At the NBA Draft Combine, Craft made 55 of 102 (53.9 percent) shot attempts from NBA three-point range, college three-point range, 15 feet and the free throw line.
