Clemson forward Bryan Narcisse is heading to training camp with the Harlem Globetrotters.
Narcisse played in 102 games for the Tigers the past four seasons and helped the team to NCAA tournament appearances in 2009, 2010 and 2011. He found out Tuesday that he had been picked by the Globetrotters.
Narcisse will have the chance to make the roster for the famed "Clown Princes of Basketball" at their training camp this fall. He said he was excited by the Globetrotters' interest and appreciates the positive message the team makes through basketball.
"I was aware they had a draft, and that they wanted to draft me," Narcisse said. "But I wasn't sure it would end up happening. By the grace of God it is, and I'm really thankful for that. There's something to be said about what the Globetrotters do, and that's take a positive message through basketball around the world. Having the chance to do that, I'm extremely excited to be a part of that."
Globetrotters director of player personnel Sweet Lou Dunbar said the team looks for athletes of all kinds that it thinks will makes its team better.
Narcisse won the team's Tiger Pride Award in 2012, which is given to a player who goes above and beyond for the good of the team.
