High school to the NBA draft pick Robert Swift says he was ready to make a big jump in his third season for Seattle. 

The big man played hard all training camp and was announced as a starter right before the last preseason game vs Sacramento. 

Unfortunately for Swift, a meaningless preseason game turned into a career changing injury.

(Via Simplemente Baloncesto):

“The day I got announced the starting center for the year I tore my ACL. I had to sit out the rest of the year.” said Swift.

“The hardest part for me after that was I didn’t really have that desire I had when I was younger to play.”
