After a fruitful four-year career in Happy Valley, which saw him start each of his 135 games and would’ve seen him surpass Talor Battle as the program’s all-time leading scorer had COVID-19 not cancelled the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments last March, Lamar Stevens will now be taking his talents to the NBA, having agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers as an undrafted free agent.

No doubt this is well-deserved for Lamar, as he has worked tirelessly to improve his perimeter shooting among other facets of his game to make himself attractive enough for an NBA team to take a chance on him. Judging from a pair of tweets he put out yesterday, his former coach Pat Chambers as well as a local elementary school were quite proud of him (along with the rest of Nittany Nation).

We here at BSD congratulate Lamar on this wonderful moment and hope to see him lighting it up for the Cavs soon enough.
