Wise not on NBA Summer League rosters

Wise not on summer league rosters

When Nic Wise wasn’t taken in the 2010 NBA draft, it was assumed that he would catch on with a summer league team.

But with the Orlando NBA summer league having started on Monday and the Las Vegas summer league starting on Friday, Nic Wise’s name is missing from all of the summer league rosters.

Wise tweeted yesterday that he “”Just got jipped out of Summer League wow.””

The summer league gives undrafted players an opportunity to be invited to an NBA training camp or impress overseas scouts, who are usually in attendance.

Wise’s former teammates Jordan Hill and Chase Budinger will play for the Houston Rockets in the Las Vegas summer league.

Former Wildcats Mustafa Shakur and Marcus Williams are expected to play for the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Indiana Pacers, respectively.
