While the Georgetown Hoyas were blanked in the NBA Draft for yet another year (since 2013), there is significant promise that several recent Hoyas, including Jamorko Pickett, Jahvon Blair, and Chudier Bile will join NBA Summer League rosters. The trio had several NBA pre-draft workouts.
However, the first news of an alum on a Vegas roster is a bit of a surprise—until you remember who else is on the Spurs. Kaleb Johnson played with the Hoyas from 2015-2019, and played for the Austin Spurs in the G League last year.

Also of note is Stephen Domingo is on the San Antonio summer roster. Domingo played two years under John Thompson III (2012-14).
Omer Yurtseven, who had a deal with the Miami Heat at the end of last year after a great G League performance, had his salary waived. It appears Yurtseven will still be on the Heat’s summer roster.

Of course, news of Mac McClung joining the Lakers on a tryout deal came to light on draft night. He is on LA’s summer roster.
