NBA Summer League important for seven former Ducks

Seven former Oregon basketball players are headed to Las Vegas for NBA Summer League. For a few Ducks, the single-elimination tournament is an important chance to make way into the NBA and for some, it’s a shot to extend NBA careers

Former Ducks on Summer League rosters

Louis King (Detroit)

King and the Detroit Pistons agreed to a two-way contract after going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. King was widely expected to be drafted in the second round, but can still can make a pretty penny and develop into an NBA talent with the Pistons.

Kenny Wooten (New York)

Wooten will join the third-overall selection, RJ Barrett, and try to make an impression during Summer League. The tournament acts as an audition for the former Duck, who is hoping for a chance to make the main roster in training camp. The Knicks, at 8-1, are favorites to win the Summer League Championship.

Chris Boucher (Toronto)

Boucher added two accomplishments to his resume this season; reigning NBA champion and G-League MVP. He appeared in 28 games with the Raptors and has one year left on his deal. A dominant performance in Las Vegas would go a long way in proving to the franchise that his G-League production will translate to the NBA.

The youngest player taken in the 2018 NBA Draft and former first-round pick enters his second season coming off of a strong final stretch of his rookie season.

In his final 15 games, Brown averaged 9.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in 27.5 minutes per game on 45.5% shooting and 35.0% from 3-point range. Summer League will be a great opportunity for Brown to show off his year one improvements.
