How former Michigan basketball player’s fared at NBA Summer League

After competing from July 7 – 17, the Las Vegas Summer League concluded on Sunday after the Portland Trail Blazers took home the Summer League title.

There were eight former Michigan basketball stars that competed in Las Vegas and we are going to show you how each former Wolverine fared. Some did quite well, while others didn’t get too much of a chance to show what they are capable of.

A big thing happened for former five-star Caleb Houstan. After his first game with the Orlando Magic, the former Wolverine officially signed a deal with his new team. Details were not disclosed, but the deal was expected to be a two-way deal with the Magic.

Houston wasn’t the only player to ink a deal during the Summer League. DJ Wilson signed a multi-year deal with the Toronto Raptors.

The other six former Wolverines are hoping they showed enough to get a deal with an NBA team in the near future.
