Congrats to Davies.
Living his NBA dream.
And from what it sounds like several teams were trying to aquire him.

Orem, UT

Congratulations Brandon! Good luck in Philly!

Baltimore, MD

It'll be fun watching Brandon in a 76ers uni.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Congrats to Brandon. I'm anxious to follow your progress in the NBA.

Lindon, UT

Good for Brandon! We were all hoping he'd land a contract somewhere. Now we hope he can get some minutes and prove he belongs on the court. Such a hard worker with a willingness to improve.

Cache, UT

Good Luck Brandon. Impressive young man.

Saratoga Springs, UT

Keep working hard Brandon! Nice job!

Great news.


Brandon might not be in the top rotation but he certainly is good enough to fill at least the 15th spot or better on most NBA teams.

Hard work... producing when has the chance as well as a little luck should keep him in the NBA for a nice career.

South Jordan, Utah

Good job Brandon. We are all (at least all of us, less one) pulling for you!

Hilarious. Another Ute football season swirling down the drain so chrissy is jumping ship in favor of the other marquee program on the hill to give us all laughs. Good job Chris B! Nice to see you recover so quickly from the USC prognostication debacle.

Let us guess, Final Four or bust for your team again this year?

And what could be a new prediction for basketplayers from the Y that I could "Mark Down" for now. Since there's not much to mark down in the football arena.

Go Brandon.

We are the most awesome team than any and our record these past five years proves it. Why? because we have two nba players.

Go Utes!


Congratulations Brandon!!!

I was a huge fan of Brandon when he was at BYU and dreaded watching him when they played Utah. He was a tough player to stop and has tons of potential as an NBA power forward. Looking forward to watching and seeing what you can do in Philadelphia. Best of luck!

I would be an advocate for BYU fans completely ignoring obsessed trolls. It's probably the one thing that will frustrate them the most and get rid of them the fastest. While I realize it can be difficult at times, let's all try to hold to it. Thanks

@Chris B.

Just for your information:

There used to be a Philadelphia in Jordan.
There is a village of Philadelphia in Germany but it's gone now.
There used to be a village of Philadelphia in Turkey but it's now called Alasehir.
There is a village of Philadelphia, Tyne and Wear, in England but they don't have a basketball team.
And there is a Philadelphia in Indiana, Tennessee, New York and Mississippi but they aren't in New York.
So When you say Davies will be playing in Europe you didn't mean Philadelphia, Penn. did you?

White Salmon, WA

Man, I was hoping that everyone would ignore Chris B's negative comments. I liked the direction this was headed, everyone ignoring and just congratulating Davies on a great honor. Still, he got the attention he wanted.

Happy go lucky!

Article is about Davies... Not Jimmer, Bogut or Miller. Enough with the Utah/Byu comparisons. It's old and tired.

Salt Lake City, UT

Chris B, why so negative. Put yourself in the shoes of Brandon or his family. Congrats are in order for him. From the article it sounds like he works very hard and does not give up. How in the world does that solicit a negative response.

Chris, get help while you can. Life has so much good to offer if you will seek for and be positive. If something in your past has made you bitter, find out what it was and let it go.


@ Chris B.

When you are referring to "playing" how does Bogut fit into that definition. He "played" 32 games last season, was pulled after 2 minutes in a game in China due to his achy back acting up again and of course you know his injury history prior to that.

Crystal Bogut isn't exactly an Ironman.

Salt Lake City, UT

Really glad for Davies. A good program. Glad he will get another opportunity.
