According to Philly.com, Scoop Jardine has received an invitation to the Charlotte Bobcats' training camp. 

Scoop Jardine had a superb five-year career with the Orange, averaging nine points and nearly five assists per game. Jardine worked out for multiple teams leading up to the draft, and according to CSN Philly, he impressed scouts with his leadership and hard work.

However, just a few days before the NBA draft, Scoop broke his foot after landing awkwardly at a work out. Scoop was nowhere close to a lock to get drafted before the injury, so the injury essentially assured him that he would go undrafted. 

After Scoop broke his foot, many people believed that he was just going to play in Europe once his foot healed. However, Jardine worked hard to rehab his foot and now he has an invite to an NBA team's training camp.

Another interesting aspect of this story is that Scoop Jardine is dating Michael Jordan's (who owns the Bobcats) daughter.
