Former Ragin’ Cajuns men’s basketball star Shawn Long became the second alum to earn an invitation to the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League when he selected by the Chicago Bulls in an announcement Wednesday. The Morgan City native and member of the 2015 U.S. Pan American Men’s Basketball Team, will join former UL great Jay Wright in the Summer League. Wright, a three-year letterwinner for the Ragin’ Cajuns, earned an invitation Tuesday with the NBA’s Orlando Magic.
Long admits that the trade caught him by surprise. In fact, prior to being shipped to Houston, he first heard that he was getting dealt to the Los Angeles Clippers. “When I first heard about it, I was supposed to be traded to the Clippers, but then I ended up getting dealt to Houston,” Long told HoopsHype. “I was actually in the middle of taking a physical when I found out about the trade. It was shocking. On one hand, I had gotten used to Philly. But at the same time, I was excited because the Rockets are a really good team and I knew I’d be closer to my family [in Louisiana]. It was sort of bittersweet. “It was definitely a surprise, though. It just sort of happened, but I guess that’s the way the business works. I didn’t know about the talks or anything ahead of time.”
