"I'm used to people making judgments about me that aren't always true," Costner said. "That doesn't bother me."
Lowe said in April he and Costner parted on good terms, and Costner said he doesn't have any animosity for Lowe.
"In the end, I felt like everyone was ready to part ways and move on from the Sendek era," Costner said. "I enjoyed my time, I wish him nothing but the best."
According to the article, Costner spent the past month at the Athletes Performance program at the 2J Basketball Academy run by former Frank Johnson near Phoenix.
Johnson had this to say to the N&O concerning Costner:
"He's a talented kid...I love his skill set. I've been trying to get him to turn up his intensity and believe in himself. He'll get a shot somewhere...With the right team and the right coach, he can get there."
Giglio also reported that Costner hopes to be drafted in the 2nd round of the NBA Draft. According to the article, Costner has worked out for the Nuggets and the Suns and has 5 more workouts scheduled between now and the draft.
"So far, the feedback has been positive," Costner said. "I think my chances are good."
While Frank Johnson didn't discredit this possibility, he did say that Costner might have to go the free agency or Europe route to begin with.
"He'll get a shot somewhere," Johnson said. "With the right team and the right coach, he can get there."
Brandon has always had the skill set to make it to the next level. We hope he puts all the pieces of the puzzle together and hears his name called on Draft Day.
