NBA Rumor: Summer League Rosters

758 rumors in this storyline

A draft-and-stash signing for the Pelicans in 2019, New Orleans retained the rights to Louzada as he signed with the Kings in July. As a result of the three-pointer, the Kings believe Louzada will be heading to the United States after the NBL season to join the Pelicans in their summer league. The question is now whether he will return. “I would assume that he will be part of [the summer league],” Kings chief executive Chris Pongrass said. “A big part of why the Pelicans are so comfortable with having him stashed down here … is because this is a great place for him to develop and be ready for the NBA. Alternatively, it’s up to the Pelicans as to when they call him up and whether that will be next season.”

The Trail Blazers’ roster for the Las Vegas Summer League will include one high-profile rookie free agent — and he carries a state-of-Oregon background. Mike Daum is a big man with a soft shooting touch who was not chosen in last week’s NBA draft. The 6-9, 245-pound forward from South Dakota State is one of the great scorers in college basketball history. He ranks seventh on the Division I career scoring list with 3,067 points, a list that includes Bradley’s Hersey Hawkins — the Blazers’ current player programs director — who stands 10th with 3,008 points. Portland State’s Freeman Williams is second with 3,249 points, behind only LSU’s Pete Maravich at 3,667.
