(Sports Overtime) -- It was a record setting NBA draft for the University of Florida. In all, five gators were taken--three in the first nine picks. That's never happened before.
The Blount County Gator, Lee Humphrey, didn't hear his name called Thursday night, but that doesn't mean hopes a professional career have ended.
Sports Overtime's Daryl Hobby talked to Humphrey's dad Friday afternoon, and Tony Humphrey told him that Lee will leave Sunday and work out for a week with the Washington Wizards. Humphrey will also play for Washington during summer league ball.
If things work out, the Wizards could sign Humphrey. If not, then playing ball in Europe could be the next step for the sharp shooting Maryville native.
Humphrey won nationals titles during his junior and senior years with the Gators.
