How Michigan’s former basketball players fared in the Las Vegas Summer League

After competing July 7-17, the Las Vegas Summer League came to a close on Sunday after the Portland Trail Blazers captured the Summer League title.

There were eight former Michigan basketball stars who competed in Las Vegas and we’ll show you how each former Wolverine fared. Some have done quite well, while others haven’t had much opportunity to show what they are capable of.

A big thing has happened for former five-star Caleb Houstan. After his first game with the Orlando Magic, the former Wolverine officially signed a deal with his new team. Details weren’t disclosed, but the deal was meant to be a two-way deal with the Magic.

Houstan wasn’t the only player to sign a deal during the Summer League. DJ Wilson has signed a multi-year contract with the Toronto Raptors.

The other six former Wolverines hope they have shown enough to secure a deal with an NBA team in the near future.
