One of the four players that left the Ohio State men’s basketball program following the 2013-14 season has found a home in the NBA, at least temporarily.

Former OSU guard Aaron Craft has signed a partially-guaranteed contract and has accepted an invitation to attend training camp with the Golden State Warriors, after playing for their NBA Summer League team in July, according to a report by the Bay Area News Group.

Following the announcement of the news, Craft, who went undrafted in June’s NBA Draft, tweeted his thoughts on the deal from his Twitter account, @ACraft4.

During his time with the Warriors’ Summer League team, Craft averaged 7.4 points per game, shot 45 percent from the floor and netted 2.6 steals per game, all the while earning some high praise from Golden State coach Steve Kerr.

Kerr wasn’t shy in his praise for the former Buckeye, lauding his defense and calling him a “winner” throughout Summer League play.

There is no date set for the start of Warriors training camp for the 2014-15 season, according to the team’s website.
