Another Big East player has revealed their plans for the future.

This time, it was Butler guard Kellen Dunham, who told Scout’s Justin Albers that he’ll be playing for the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA Summer League.

Our Vijay Vemu said the following about Dunham in his scouting report,

He is an extremely efficient shooter (43.8% from the field and 42.9% from three) and his shooting ability made him such a dangerous threat whenever he touched the ball. He’s not just a spot up shooter, as Dunham showed that he has a pull--up jumper game as well. It was extremely beneficial for Dunham to develop this game considering he could just pump fake off a catch and shoot, go right past the defender, and pull up for a simple mid-range jump shot. He has insane range and can hit a shot from anywhere on the court.

Dunham is one of those "microwave" type shooters as he gets hot in a hurry and doesn’t stop when he gets going. His ability to create space between him and his defender, whether it is off a screen or not, is what makes him such a good shooter. When you give him space on a jump shot, it’s usually going in. Dunham is also a very good free throw shooter and it allowed him to stay on the court during late game situations when Butler needed to knock down key free throws to seal a game.

Dunham and the Grizzlies will open Summer League play on July 8.
