Former Iowa State star Deonte Burton never gave up on his NBA dream. Even when he spent his first professional season playing thousands of miles from home and even thousands of miles away from the NBA in South Korea. “I always felt that I could play in the NBA,” Burton said before Sunday’s game against the Iowa Wolves. “So it’s never been far-fetched for me, because I felt like I belong and I should be in the NBA.”
