My only conciliation is... at least he didn't go to the Lakers (AKA West All Star Team). I think I can cheer for the Clippers to win games.

Good Luck Mr. Davies.

Playing with CP3 will be a lot of fun and will cater to your athleticism. Stay healthy!


But seriously folks!

Another success story for BYU. Great program, great athletes.
I love my independence.

Smart move on the part of the Clippers. Brandon will prove himself well.

Great article!

This is exactly why BYU and Tom Holmoe decided to join the Pacific Coast Conference. Exposure, exposure and exposure.

Good for Brandon.

How excited he must be, to be on a team with CP3, Griffin, Jordan, Rivers...

For his sake...hope he sticks.

Count another Ute fan in the department of being happy for Davies.
This is exactly why I wrote the comment I did last week, it's often better to go undrafted than being selected in the 2nd round (teams don't have to sign 2nd rounders). This way a player can talk to teams that have a need for his particular talents/position.
Good for Davies, I hope he tears it up.


@Wookie, ekute, motorbike:

Thanks for your comments and class. I'm a lifelong BYU fan, but have never understood the need for antagonism and criticism thrown back and forth between BYU/UTAH/USU fans when the other school/team/former player has success. When it's rivalry week, I'm all for friendly, harmless banter and competitiveness. But the rest of the time, I'm comfortable recognizing and even appreciating the successes of the Damian Lillard's and Paul Kruger's that have come from our state's collective universities. Everything else is just silly, insecure fight-picking that makes fans from all 3 schools look bad.

I am glad for Brandon Davies. He's earned a shot at the NBA & now will be part of a good team with a good coach. Congrats and best of luck!

I hope he takes advantage to the opportunity and sticks with the team. Good for you kid, good luck!!

Provo, UT

Good to hear! Congrats Brandon!

Salt Lake City, UT

Good to hear B will get a shot at making the team. Good to see the unified comments here as well.

Hope he plays well in the summer league as the Clippers are pretty set in the front court. Brandon will be a power forward in the NBA and the Clippers already have a pretty good power forward named Griffin. But he should help some team.

Orem, UT

Living the dream! CP and Griffin on your team! Best of luck Brandon!

Centerville, UT

Congratulations to Brandon Davies. I truly admire the way he bounced back from the Honor Code situation 2 years ago. It is great to see that that incident will not be what he is known for. I hope he does well in the NBA. It is nice to see both Utes and Cougars appreciating a good story about a good young man. If we could always be this classy, it would be gret!

Orem, UT

Good for Brandon. And...the comments are truly a breath of fresh air...thanks to all!

The main reason Davies went undrafted is the second round was dominated by foreign players who can stay abroad and improve their game, i.e. Kirelinko. Also, Bledsoe isn't a wing player, but a point guard. There has been a lot of interest in him this last year and I think the Clippers held onto him as insurance in case Chris Paul left.

Woohoo. I was just wondering if anyone was going to pick him up. Glad someone did. Wish the Celtics would have but it will just be good to see anyone BYU player play in the NBA.
