Former Louisville players Terry Rozier and Wayne Blackshear have both signed with agent Aaron Turner of Verus Management Team. They made the deal official during a signing party Thursday evening in Cleveland.
"I'm excited to sign with Aaron and the Verus team," Rozier told Slam Magazine. "I'm looking forward to showing teams that I am a point guard and improving every day."
For Rozier, the move puts to bed any hope Louisville fans might have been holding out that the star guard could have had a last-minute change of heart. For Blackshear, it's the first step in proving to NBA coaches and executives that he can consistently be the player he was during the final weeks of his senior season.
"I'm looking forward to getting an opportunity to show what I can do in front of teams," Blackshear said. "I'm going to be putting in work on my ball-handling, creating my own shot, and getting shots up from the NBA three point line."
