Injured forward Chris Boucher has also signed a two-way contract but will not have an opportunity to play in the Summer League. Perrantes should have a chance to show off the court awareness and passing prowess that helped him become a four-year starter at point guard for Tony Bennett. Nuggets assistant coach Micah Nori will assume head coaching duties for the Summer League entry.

Utah will host games in Salt Lake City July 3-6.

" Outlook: After missing out on playing in the summer league last season, Gill gets his chance this season with the Hornets". He also contributed 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game.

Former Virginia center Mike Tobey (10) will play for the Detroit Pistons' summer league team.

The Knicks and the Pistons will play one another at 1 p.m. Sunday on the second day of the week-long Orlando event.

NBA Summer League has a rich history of showcasing the NBA's future stars as well as giving players who have been been overlooked or undervalued the opportunity to make a statement in front of NBA scouts, D-League scouts and worldwide scouts, plenty of which will be attending Orlando, Utah and Vegas to improve their respective teams. Tobey began last season with the Greensboro Swarm of the NBA Development League. Barber finished with 14 points - including six the the game's final 33 seconds - to go with five assists and six rebounds. The Vegas Summer league runs from July 7 to July 17 and will feature 24 of the NBA's 30 teams. With the Nuggets 2017 NBA Summer League team, there's clearly a blend of the two. This will be the third straight summer Petteway has played in the NBA Summer League (Atlanta, 2015; Milwaukee, 2016).

Petteway played for Flexx Pistoia in the Seria A in Italy during the 2016-17 season, averaging a team-high 14.6 points per game on 42 percent shooting, including 35 percent from three-point range.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino is encouraging NBA teams to sign his former captain, describing Mathiang as a "great 11th or 12th man on any professional basketball team", who can "play defence, block shots, rebound the ball, good low-post player".
