ATLANTA – Former Georgia Tech basketball stars Will Bynum and Luke Schenscher, key cogs in the Yellow Jackets’ run to the national title game in 2004 and in 48 wins over the past two seasons, were drafted into the National Basketball Developmental League Thursday night.
Bynum, a 6-0 guard, was taken in the first round by the Roanoke Dazzle, while Schenscher, a 7-1 center, went in the second round to the Fort Worth Flyers.
Bynum had signed a free agent contract with the Boston Celtics following the NBA draft in June, and was cut two weeks ago. Schenscher participated in training camps with the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings before being released in the Kings’ final cuts.
B.J. Elder and Anthony McHenry, who also finished their Tech careers last year, are playing for Giessen, Germany, and Leicester, England, respectively. Point guard Jarrett Jack is with the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA.
