Summer League rosters filled by some solid undrafted players

Our top rated players that did not get drafted are accepting invites to NBA Summer League rosters. Vermont’s Marqus Blakely, who we think is a first-round talent, has signed on with the Clippers. See this video of Blakely who clearly has skill to transition to guard in the NBA.

Duke big man Brian Zoubek is scheduled to play with the Nets in the Orlando Summer League. 

Mikhail Torrance (pictured at left) was not drafted in part due to a heart condition known as “athlete’s heart”.  The classy Alabama Point Guard looks to have agreed to ball for the summer Bobcats.  

Aubrey Coleman led the nation in scoring at Houston. So far I have not been able to track down where he will play this summer.  

Scottie Reynolds, the first player to be a First Team All-America selection yet go undrafted since the 1976 NBA-ABA merger, will play with the Phoenix Suns summer team. 

I have not yet been able to track down where Tyler Smith will play. The Tennessee swingman is versatile and tough. Someone needs to get him on a summer roster ASAP.  

Jerome Randle of California will hoop with the Wizards summer squad. Forget his size. Randle is a certified shooter and ball-handler that will excel in the NBA. 

Sylven Landesberg will play for the Sacramento Kings Las Vegas Summer League team. Landesberg is capable of getting to the hole in a similar fashion to Tyreke Evans

Ben Uzoh, who was one of our favorite sleeper Point Guards has signed up to play with New Jersey in the summer. 

Michigan guard Manny Harris is down with either the Celtics or Cavs (depending on what you believe) for the hot months. 

Matt Bouldin, the highly skilled Gonzaga combo-guard has a deal with the summer Bulls. 

One unconfirmed report has speedy UConn guard Jerome Dyson (pictured at left) headed to the Wizards for the summer. If true, Dyson will join former Duke Point Guard Jon Scheyer in D.C.

Other undrafted notables that appear to have their summer plans in place include: Omar Samhan (Atlanta Hawks), Sherron Collins (Charlotte Bobcats), Jared Quayle (signed with a team in Belgium), Ryan Thompson (Sacramento Kings), Art Parakhouski (Boston Celtics), Marquis Gilstrap (Charlotte Bobcats), Charles Garcia (New York Knicks), Jeremy Wise (Golden State Warriors), Raymar Morgan (Washington Wizards), and Samardo Samuels (Chicago Bulls).

Up in the air at the moment: A.J. Ogilvy, Edwin Ubiles, Mac Koshwal, and Alex Franklin.
