Troy Daniels is one step closer to living his NBA dreams as he makes the Charlotte Bobcats preseason roster. Daniels, “Buzz”, is a 6’4” Guard who can sink 3-pointers, with no sweat, all game long. During his college career with VCU Daniels broke records for most 3-point field goals in a single season with 124 and in a single game with 11. With his average points per game at 12.3, Daniels knows how to keep his team ahead. Troy Daniels listens to Skaka Smart courtside (Steve Helber/AP) Daniels came out of high school with sturdy rankings such as Rivals.com listing him as a 3-star prospect and one of the best shooters in Virginia. He also had Scout.com listing him as the 35th best guard in the country. Daniels was one of Shaka Smart’s first recruits as Head Coach for the Rams as he noticed his strong presence on the court. While playing for VCU he thrived shooting from well beyond the 20.9 3-point line which made him a great competitor for the 23.9 NBA 3-point boundaries.

Last year’s rankings put the Bobcats as the 4th worst 3-point shooting team which is why it’s no surprise that they wanted Daniels to play for them this past summer. Daniels played in five of the Bobcat’s Summer League games in Las Vegas. He averaged 5.4 points with 1 rebound in 14.3 minutes. Although the Bobcats are also looking at strong 3-point shooter James Southerland and league returner Patrick O’Bryant, Daniel’s experience with the team over the summer should help him earn playing time. With the Bobcat’s Southeast Division ranking at 4th and 14th in the Eastern Conference they have a lot to prove and room to grow. Daniels has shown through his time at VCU and with the team this summer that he has the dedication, 3-point shooting talent and passion that this team needs. As fans keep up with Daniels through the preseason they root for him to earn a contract and join the 6 other VCU players who have gone to play in the NBA.
