Syracuse point guard, and Philadelphia native Scoop Jardine was not selected in Thursday’s NBA Draft. Jardine, who suffered a broken foot last week, will likely get a chance at the NBA through a free agent contract and an invitation to training camp (But will likely miss the summer league).

Jardine underwent surgery in Los Angeles Tusday, to repair the broken bone, which has an 8-12 week recovery period, according to his father.

Jardine was projected as a possible late second-round pick going into Thursday’s draft after a five-year career at Syracuse. He averaged 8.9 points and 4.9 assists as a senior for SU, leading the Orange to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and a trip to the Elite Eight.

In preparation for the draft, Jardine worked out for upwards of seven teams and broke his foot in a workout with Utah last week. Jardine’s father, Antonio Jardine, said the surgery was a success and that a full recovery is expected.

Scoops teammates, Dion Waiters, Fab Melo and Kris Joseph were all selected in Thursday’s draft. Waiters (No. 4, Cleveland) and Melo (No. 22, Boston) were first-round draft picks while Joseph went at No. 51 to the Celtics as well.
