BASKETBALL: UB's Gamble to work out for Raptors

By Jonah Bronstein

Jonny Flynn and Paul Harris aren’t the only Niagara Falls products showing off their skills in front of NBA scouts this month.

Recent University at Buffalo graduate Greg Gamble has been invited to work out today for the Toronto Raptors, the Bulls announced Monday.

It’s unlikely the Raptors will select Gamble in the two-round NBA draft on June 25, but Gamble could show enough to earn a training camp invitation.

Gamble was a team captain for his final two years at UB. As a senior, he shifted from small forward to point guard, and led the Bulls to a share of the Mid-American Conference East division title, and a spot in the conference championship game. He averaged 8.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists, and was an honorable mention on the all-conference team.

The pre-draft workout circuit has helped Gamble’s former Niagara Falls teammates improve their draft stock.
