Guyton Invited To Cleveland Cavaliers Workout
Golden Flashes guard averaged 11.2 points over the past two season for Kent State
KENT, Ohio — Kent State senior Carlton Guyton (Chicago, Ill.) completed his collegiate career this past season for the Golden Flashes, but his days of playing basketball are far from over. Guyton was one of just a handful of players the Cleveland Cavaliers invited to a pre-draft workout this past week.
"The workout went pretty well and it was a good experience for me," said Guyton who was an honorable mention All-Mid-American Conference selection this past season.
"We did quite a few drills, then competed against each other in different competitions. I felt comfortable out there all day and hit quite a few shots. They also provided us with some feed back and some adjustments that will be beneficial on the professional level."
The workout last approximately three hours and also included testing for vertical jump and a 3/4 court sprint.
"The experience was great and it was good to get my feet wet. I'm looking forward to starting my next journey into the pro game be it here or overseas."
The 2011 MAC Sixth-Man of the Year, Guyton averaged 9.9 points per game in 2011-12. He came on strong down the stretch averaging 13.0 points over the final nine games heading into the MAC Tournament.
"This is a great opportunity for 'Scootie' (Guyton)," said Kent State Head Coach Rob Senderoff. "For the past two years he has been one of the best players in our league at creating his own shot. He has a quick first step and can get to the rim. We're excited for him and wish him the best of luck as he makes the transition to the pro game."
