Former Ducks Guard Devoe Joseph
joined guest host Fletcher Johnson on The Bald Faced Truth Thursday afternoon to talk about his time in the NBA summer league, in the Ukraine, and his senior year with Oregon.
Joseph said that the offer to start for the Ducks was a major factor in his decision to transfer to the West Coast.
“I just really wanted the opportunity to showcase what I could do, and I felt like it would be the best situation for me to grow as a basketball player and get better.”
“He’s such a positive person, so encouraging. He just makes you want to go out there and play your heart out for him. I got that feeling when I first met him, and nothing has changed to this day.”
“I think I’ve improved on everything, in my defense especially. In the Ukraine it’s a very physical and tough defense. There’s no breaks.”
Now, back stateside playing in the Las Vegas Summer League, Joseph said he continued to learn and improve.
“It’s a great experience being there with the Raptors, with all the great players and coaches. I learned a lot from it.”
