And another one. Fresh off a report that the top undrafted prospect, Cliff Alexander, has signed with the Nets, Shams Charania of RealGM reports another of those not picked Thursday will play for Brooklyn in the summer league. Ryan Boatright.
Boatright, a four-year standout at UConn and a starter on its 2014 NCAA championship team, averaged 17.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists this past season. The 6-foot guard also shot 41.1 percent from three-point range on over six attempts per game.
Boatright had hoped to be drafted Thursday, but it was always more likely that he'd end the night without a team cap and a handshake from Adam Silver. Boatright is undersized for an NBA guard at 5'10". He worked out for the Nets earlier this month.
Also to the @BrooklynNets for giving me a opportunity !! That's all I wanted and needed! U will not regret it— Ryan Boatright (@Ryanboatright11) June 27, 2015
In addition to Boatright Alexander, there have been reports that Lionel Hollins son, Austin Hollins, who played in Denain, France last season; DeShawn Delaney, a 6'5" point guard of New Mexico and Juvonte Reddic, a 6'9" power forward who played in Bologna, Italy last season, have been identified as players the Nets have recruited for play in either the Orlando Magic Summer League, the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, or both.
