Nichols, Watkins Land Summer Gigs With The NBA

via blog.syracuse.com

You already knew Wes Johnson and Andy Rautins would be spending their summers in the NBA Summer League.  The question was whether or not they'd be joined by any familiar faces...perhaps not familiar to them but certainly familiar to us.

So far, we can expect to see two blasts from the recent past pop back up for Summer League, one in each of them. 

Ridiculous Upside has a handy-dandy roster list for all of the Vegas Summer League teams and Syracuse fans will recognize one guy in particular added to the Portland roster.

Demetris Nichols, last seen plating in France for something called BCM Gravelines Dunkerque Grand Littoral after approximately 47 different NBA and NBDL stops, will suit up for Portland in the Vegas League.  The Blazers (who have the least user-friendly website I've seen in a while) will play Wes, Jonny and the rest of the Timberwolves on 7/17.

Meanwhile over in the Orlando Summer League, the Pacers will be featuring a certain Darryl Watkins amongst their players. Watkins spent brief time with the Kings, Clippers, Spurs & Cavs and most recently played for TianJin Rongcheng in China.  The Orlando league goes first, playing between July 5th and 9th.
