NBA Summer League 2013: Undrafted free agent invitation roundup


The latest information on who will be playing where during summer-league ball in Vegas next month.

Even after 60 players landed new employers in Thursday's NBA Draft, dozens of rookies remain available for the taking. With the freedom to choose their first team, a benefit not enjoyed by the top players, we're seeing guys get snapped up quickly by franchises looking to fill summer-league rosters and maybe unearth some legitimate contributors.

With summer play beginning on July 12 from Las Vegas, teams aren't waiting to land the best of the leftovers. Here's a round-up of all the undrafted free agent action on Saturday, with all reports coming from Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld unless noted otherwise:

  • Missouri guard Phil Pressey, Iona guard Lamont "Momo" Jones and Jayson Granger of the Spanish ACB League will play for the Boston Celtics' summer league team. Former Indiana guard Eli Holman may also join the squad.
  • North Carolina State forward C.J. Leslie joins first-round pick Tim Hardaway Jr. on the New York Knicks' summer squad.
  • Indiana forward Christian Watford makes a somewhat unprecedented move, agreeing to play for both the Indiana Pacers and Dallas Mavericks in Las Vegas. Watford will be joined on the Pacers by Julian Mavunga of Miami (Ohio).
  • Temple's Khalif Wyatt and Marquette's Vander Blue will follow the same route as Watford. Wyatt has signed on to play for Dallas and Philadelphia, while Blue will take the court for Houston and Memphis.
  • Leslie's teammate, Wolfpack forward Richard Howell, joins the Denver Nuggets along with Wake Forest's C.J. Harris and La Salle's Ramon Galloway.
  • Central Florida forward Keith Clanton and Saint Mary's guard Matthew Dellavedova will play with the Orlando Magic.
  • Syracuse forward Brandon Triche and VCU guard Troy Daniels join the Charlotte Bobcats.
  • Minnesota forward Rodney Williams will play for the Philadelphia 76ers. He'll be joined by big man Michael Eric, who last played in the D-League, Keith Pompey of reports.
  • A trio of Iowa State players found temporary homes, as Will Clyburn joins the Sacramento Kings, Chris Babb joins the Phoenix Suns and Korie Lucious joins the Detroit Pistons.
  • Former Missouri State guard Kyle Weems, who most recently played in Germany, will play for the Atlanta Hawks. He'll be joined by Memphis Tigers wing Adonis Thomas.
  • The next Danny Green? Miami shooting guard Durand Scott joins the San Antonio Spurs.
  • Tennessee State's Robert Covington, Murray State's Ed Daniel and Arkansas' B.J. Young join the Houston Rockets. Daniel reunites with his college teammate and Rockets second-round selection, point guard Isaiah Canaan.
  • Miami's Kenny Kadji joins the Cleveland Cavaliers.
  • Carlos Boozer's brother, Charles Boozer, will play for the Chicago Bulls.
  • Notre Dame's Jack Cooley and Missouri's Laurence Bowers join the Memphis Grizzlies
  • UNLV's Anthony Marshall, Texas guard Myck Kabongo and Memphis high-flyer D.J. Stephens will play for the Miami Heat. Stephens' 46-inch vertical leap at this spring's combine was the highest ever recorded at the pre-draft event, while Kabongo was generally considered a second-round talent.
  • Creighton big man Gregory Echenique will join the Toronto Raptors.
  • Matt Lojeski, a former Hawaii guard who last played in Belgium, will play for the New Orleans Pelicans.
  • Illinois guard Brandon Paul will play for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
  • BYU forward Brandon Davies will join the Los Angeles Clippers.
  • Southern Miss guard Dwayne Davis will play for the Golden State Warriors, according to Patrick McGee of the Sun Herald.
  • Duke guard Seth Curry received offers from a number of teams, but he doesn't expect to be healthy enough to play this summer after April shin surgery.
