It appears yet another Big Ten product will be part of the Wizards' Las Vegas Summer League roster.
Traveon Jackson, a guard on Wisconsin's national runner-up team, apparently received and accepted an invitation from Washington, according to the Badgers' Twitter account. The 6-foot-2 senior worked out at Verizon Center on June 10.
Two other former Big Ten products - Iowa power forward Aaron White, the Wizards' second round selection, and Maryland guard Dez Wells - are expected to participate along with first round selection Kelly Oubre Jr.
Playing alongside eventual first-round picks Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, Jackson averaged 8.1 points and 2.6 assists during his senior year for the Badgers. Following his workout with the Wizards, the son of former NBA guard Jim Jackson commented on what parts of his game would translate to the pro level.
"I think me being able to create my own shot and being able create for others as well," Jackson said, "Just my leadership, my voice. I love being able to lead guys in the right direction."
Other than the two draft picks, the roster will include undrafted or other free agents and not anybody from Washington's roster last season.
The Wizards will hold mini-camp in town before heading to Las Vegas ahead of their first game on July 11.
