Former Buff George King tells Mile High Sports: ‘Shot the ball well’ in Nuggets work out

The Colorado Buffaloes have a former talent getting attention in George King as he prepares for the NBA Draft, including a work out with the Denver Nuggets.

“I thought I did well. Shot the ball well,” King told Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7 regarding his workout with the Nuggets Tuesday.

King was asked if there’s any additional pressure to perform for teams in work outs and camps to which King said, it’s just basketball.

“I wouldn’t call it pressure. I mean, it’s basketball right? These teams know what you can do already, they’ve been watching you your whole career at your school,” King said.

“You’re not going to wow them with anything, they already know what you can do. Basically they just want to see you up close, they just want to see you in their system.”

King also participated in the NBA draft combine back in mid-May and says the opportunity was a great one for him, to show off his skills in front of many NBA decision makers.

“It was a great opportunity for myself. Some of the best players in the country were invited, me being one of them,” King said of the draft combine. “It was great to go out there and compete against those guys and showcase our skillset in front of some real decision makers at the pro level.”
