Like Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons descending upon Westeros, a few of your Fighting Hoyas of Georgetown will be heading to Las Vegas for the 2016 NBA Summer League.
Per @AlexKennedyNBA, Henry Sims will play summer league with the Nets, DaJuan Summers with the Knicks and Aaron Bowen with the Magic. #Hoyas— Hoyas247 (@Hoyas247) June 26, 2016
Of the above, Henry Sims is probably a safe bet to make the Nets after an impressive showing towards the end of last season. Summers has played in the Summer League for the last few seasons but hasn't played in the NBA since 2013 with the Los Angeles Clippers. Summers was close to making the Knicks last season but was waived in the preseason.
Aaron Bowen will be making his NBA Summer League debut after a successful season with the Erie BayHawks in the NBA D-League, where he displayed the kind of hops we were used to seeing during his time on the Hilltop:
No word yet on which teams other Hoyas such as recent graduate D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera will play for, though I expect him to receive an invite from one or more squads. Last season, Jabril Trawick, Greg Whittington, Jonathan Wallace and Josh Smith all played in Las Vegas and they should be back as well.
