Oklahoma basketball: “Summer Dreams” documentary to feature former Sooner Romero Osby

Producer Evan Rosenfeld and his group wanted a wide variety of players — from Michael Carter-Williams, who was eventually selected No. 11 overall, to Shane Larkin who went No. 18, to Osby.

“We didn’t want (it) to be six people who were all lottery picks,” Rosenfeld said. “We wanted the fan who watches the documentary to get the perspective from people across the board.”

The documentary also features undrafted Dwayne Davis, NBA Development League coach Joel Abelson and Lauren Holtkamp, who is looking to break into the NBA as a full-time referee.

“It’s about the grind and the struggles that most people don’t get to see when it comes to a player,” Osby said. “I think people will really enjoy it. It really goes deep into our story. You kind of get into the story of where my life is going and what my life consists of, as well as other people.”

Osby was drafted by the Magic in the second round but didn’t make the team after a solid summer league showing.

He went on to play for the Maine Red Claws in the D-League, averaging better than 16 points per game before suffering a torn labrum early in the season. He had surgery about six weeks ago and is looking to participate in the Summer League again this season.

“It’s just another chapter to my story,” Osby said. “I’m ready to advance and get back out of this injury and get back playing. Everything happens for a reason. I was playing great and that gave me confidence coming off the injury so I know I can do some great things.”
