Courtney Fells Nears NBA Dream

Courtney Fells (NC State wing from 2005-2009) was one guy who I always thought  had all the essentials to become an NBA player. He had the height, the length, the athleticism and the shot, but just never really put it together at NC State. Whether it was his defense, his handle or his lateral quickness, he just never was able to become great at the college level. Now, however, Fells is on the cusp of making the Spurs roster. He and Dan Nwaelee are the final two guys fighting it out for the final roster spot and those around San Antonio are thinking it might be Fells.

Here is a nice excerpt from the ProjectSpurs blog on Fells:

Coach Popovich on Courtney Fells: “I think he’s going to be a good player in this league eventually.”

If there was one unknown player on the roster who made the most of his opportunity, it was forward Courtney Fells. Fells came off the bench in the second half to finish with six points, two steals, and seven rebounds in 17 minutes of play.

His hustle and energy are something Popovich praised him for postgame.

“He’s got a feel for the game and he matches it with his hustle on the court. He competes every play and a lot players don’t really know how to do that, but he seems to do it.”


I think I can speak for all of Wolfpack nation when i say “We’re rooting for ya, Courtney!”
