2014 NBA Draft: Former SDSU forward Josh Davis signs with the Charlotte Hornets' summer league team

He didn't hear his name called on draft night, but Josh Davis will still have the opportunity to earn a spot on the roster of his hometown Charlotte Hornets.

According to Josh Davis' Twitter account, Davis has signed with the Charlotte Hornets' summer league team.

When the San Diego State Aztecs finished their season at the Sweet 16 in Anaheim, California, forward Josh Davis sat on nobody's NBA radar.

But he was also on few peoples' radar coming out of high school, receiving just one Division I scholarship offer to North Carolina State University, according to ESPN. And he proved people wrong very quickly, averaging a double-double en route to winning All-Conference USA First-Team honors for his 2012-13 season at Tulane. Then he averaged the country's 15th most rebounds per game in the regular season en route to winning the 2013-14 Mountain West Newcomer of the Year and an appearance in the Sweet 16.

So it came as no surprise when Davis placed himself on those NBA radars through his hard work and earned workouts with at least four NBA teams. One of those teams being his local Charlotte Hornets.

Apparently the Hornets liked what they saw, and Davis will now have the opportunity to earn a 2014-15 roster spot through the NBA Summer League.

The Summer League is from July 11 to July 1 in Las Vegas. Charlotte's first game is against the Golden State Warriors on July 11 at 5:30 p.m. PT at the Thomas and Mack Center. You can see all NBA Summer League games by downloading the NBA Summer League Live app.
