NBA Summer League: Tar Heels to Play in the Summer League

Sunday marks the start of the new season for the NBA. While it may not be official games, its the start of the season for many younger players and rookies. Sunday kicks off the 2013 NBA Summer League.

Reggie Bullock will begin his professional career with the Los Angeles Clippers as he prepares to play for them this summer. Joining him from ACC rival North Carolina State will be Scott Wood. Both players known for having an excellent perimeter game should provide some great efforts and entertainment on the court.

John Henson continues to establish himself in the NBA and he too will play in the summer league for his Milwaukee Bucks. He’s joined by ACC foe Ish Smith from Wake Forest.

Dexter Strickland is still without an NBA home and is searching for a team to pick him up.

It’s also worth noting that former North Carolina Tar Heel Larry Drew II has signed as a free agent with the Miami Heat and will be playing in this year’s Summer League.

NC State has a huge showing in this year’s Summer League, but most of the Wolfpack are having to sign as undrafted free agents to get a start in the NBA.
