Georgia Tech fans had to know that Daniel Miller and Kammeon Holsey were going to be playing professional basketball in some capacity, it was just a matter of when and where.
It turns out that both former Tech hoop standouts will be shooting the pill overseas in Spanish speaking countries.
Daniel Miller, who received an NBA opportunity from the Washington Wizards this summer after going undrafted, will be taking his game to Northwest Spain to play with Rio Natura Monbus Obradoiro.
Miller saw limited playing time in the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League, which led most to believe that playing overseas was going to be the next logical move.
When Miller left the Tech campus he was fourth in ACC history in career blocks with 286, and sixth in ACC history in career defensive rebounds with 559.
Kammeon Holsey signed his overseas deal to play pro ball in Colombia with Guerros de Bogota who plays in the Liga DirecTV.
Holsey has been playing solid ball in South America averaging 17 points and 10 boards in 10 games.
Kammeon Holsey overcame a lot to play pro ball in Colombia. He had to redshirt after a knee injury sidelined him for the 2009-10 season.
Upon his return to the team, Holsey became one of the best sixth-men in the ACC.
Overall Holsey played in 125 games for the Yellow Jackets and logged 7.3 points and 4.3 rebounds over his career.
Seeing these two players land on their feet in professional basketball has to be good news for fans who have followed their careers.
This also reflects well on the basketball program under coach Brian Gregory that his players see basketball life after college.
Congratulations to Kammeon Holsey and Daniel Miller for continuing to ball elsewhere. It is going to be interesting to follow their professional progress overseas.
