There’s nothing like having a pro basketball player with an elite pedigree join your basketball team. That is, unless they’re one of Michael Jordan’s sons or one of the many, many spawns of pro players that simply don’t live up to their last name.
But that shouldn’t stop the Charlotte Bobcats from giving Patrick Ewing Jr. a shot in 2013. Ewing Jr. has performed pretty well during summer league action, and based off of several solid outings, it’s worth wondering if Charlotte should/will give him an invite to training camp.
Ewing Jr. the son of legendary center Patrick Ewing and a former Georgetown product, continues to try to make his way into the NBA the hard way, but could finally be getting closer to a legit shot at proving he’s worthy of sticking on an NBA roster.
In fact, Ewing Jr. nearly registered a double-double in Charlotte’s last summer league game, with 10 points and eight rebounds. With solid outings throughout summer league that haven’t always popped out in the box score, Bobcats fans might be wondering if Charlotte has a place for an NBA legend’s son.
More importantly, it’s time NBA fans found out that Patrick Ewing’s son actually deserves a roster spot, and that the Bobcats might be the perfect team for him.
