HoopsHype Sean Kilpatrick rumors
He would be playing in two NBA summer leagues — in Orlando with the Philadelphia 76ers and in Las Vegas with the Miami Heat. “I want to show these teams my motor, that I never stop playing hard, how I can rebound, get up and down the floor, be athletic,” said Roberts, who averaged 14.4 points and 7.4 rebounds last season for at St. Joe’s team, and went for 15 points and 10 rebounds when St. Joe’s lost to eventual national champion UConn in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, losing 89-81 in OT. “And show my mid-range jumper and my ball-handling, so I’m hoping to show both of those things in the summer leagues.” Former Cincinnati guard Sean Kilpatrick of White Plains and former St. John’s forward JaKarr Sampson are also on the Sixers’ summer league team. St. John’s and St. Joe’s met in the NIT during Roberts’s junior season. “I played against him, he’s good,” he said. “If you look at the roster, they have a lot of athletic guys on the team so I’m looking forward to playing with those guys.” ZagsBlog.com
