The Sioux Falls Skyforce are getting back into the swing of things and this weekend they held their open team tryouts.
Some local talent showed up to try to make the cut, including former SDSU standout Kai Williams. Williams says he's very happy for the chance to play, especially here in South Dakota.
"I wanna keep on playing professional basketball for as long as I can," Williams said, "And just being able to pursue that dream in South Dakota, a home away from home, is a nice opprotunity."
Skyforce Head Coach Mo McHone says the pool of talent that has come with the tryouts has made his job a little bit more difficult, but in a good way.
"Usually in a camp like this there's one or two guys who stand out," McHone said, ""But we're kind of having a hard time, we're supposed to turn in five names to the D-League office because of this and we're kind of having a hard time because there's so many that have played well."
The Skyforce will kick off their season Friday, November 25th, in Fort Wayne.Follow KDLT Sports at @KDLTSports and KDLT Weekend Sports Anchor Kolbe Nelson at @KolbeNelson for opinions, links, and updates on Twitter. And don't forget to check out the KDLT Sports Facebook Page
