While the NBA Draft has come and gone, the players who didn’t get drafted will still receive opportunities, either via camp or Summer League. Over the next couple weeks, we’ll be updating this post regularly with the Big East players that sign with NBA teams.
Parade of Undrafteds begins: Villanova NCAA title hero Kris Jenkins going to Wizards’ camp, per source.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) June 23, 2017
This one’s a no-brainer. Jenkins is from the Washington DC area, and the Wizards also employ Daniel Ochefu. They should trade for Josh Hart and Ryan Arcidiacono and get the band back together!
According to NBA sources the #Rockets have an agreement with undrafted free agent LJ Peak, small forward from Georgetown— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) June 23, 2017
This seems like a really solid fit. It would be interesting to see if Peak could stick, because I’d like to watch him (or anyone, really) in Mike D’Antoni’s offense.
D’Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Rodney Pryor are three of my favorite college players in the past few years. I hope they can all make the Nets and start turning things around in Brooklyn.
If it doesn’t work for Pryor, he has the Harlem Globetrotters as a fallback.
After two seasons as one of the Big East’s best sharpshooters, Cole Huff is taking his talents to Toronto!
I suppose he’s technically taking his talents to Las Vegas with the ultimate goal of taking them to Toronto, but you get the point.
The ex-Villanova big man has made the Philadelphia 76ers Summer League roster!
Also of note, one-time Providence player Brandon Austin.
