Josh Scott, one of the greatest players to go through the University of Colorado men’s basketball program, will get a crack at the NBA – with his home team, no less.

Our friends at BSN Denver report that Scott has landed a spot on the Denver Nuggets Summer League team.

Scott did not hear his name called during the NBA Draft; however, was nearly a slam dunk to make the someone’s Summer League squad. That team turned out to be the club just up I-25 from where Scott grew up in Monument, Colo.

Scott averaged 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in his final season at Colorado, both being the highest marks of his career at CU.

Scott landed a pre-draft workout with the Nuggets and impressed general manager Tim Connelly and Co. enough to get a crack at the team during the summer.
