Friar Friday News & Notes, Including a God Shammgod Update

Here are some Providence news and notes from the week, including a God Shammgod update, Providence’s upcoming visitors, an updated Scout.com 2019 recruit rankings, and more.

God Signs an Extension

God Shammgod left Providence for a job in player development with the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks last July. After a successful year in Dallas in which Shammgod has received credit for the improvement of Harrison Barnes, the Mavs locked up the former Friar with a 4-year contract extension. While Barnes’ improvement is noteworthy for the Mavs after they signed him to a 4-year, $94.4 million contract, what may be motivating the Mavericks to keep Shammgod around is Dennis Smith, Jr. Shammgod and Smith have a prior relationship from Smith’s high school days and he is expected to be the point guard of the future after being taken 9th overall in April’s NBA Draft.

Providence Lands Top Big Man Target in 2017

Ed Cooley should host a top recruit annually on his birthday. 2017 power forward Nate Watson got to Providence on the night of September 9th for his official visit and committed to Cooley and the Friars before heading home the night of September 10th: Cooley’s 47th birthday. The news was first reported by Adam Zagoria. “Coach told me he’d never lost a recruit on his birthday,” Watson told Kevin McNamara of the Providence Journal. Watson continued, “he jumped in his (swimming) pool when I gave him the word.” Cooley and his staff prioritized Watson since they offered him a scholarship back in early February, a few weeks before 2017 6’11 center Dajour Dickens committed to the Friars.

Labor Day Weekend Providence Basketball Update

The Labor Day Weekend is a time for people to hit the beach or lake or [insert other fun summer activity here] one last time before saying goodbye to summer and hello to the school year.
