Deonte Burton Joins 76ers Summer League Team
Former Nevada Wolf Pack Point Guard Deonte Burton will join the Philadelphia 76ers Summer League team this year.
Burton, who ranks second all-time on Nevada's Scoring list, did not get selected in the 2014 NBA Draft. He would then play on the Washington Wizards Summer League team in 2014 before a Training Camp stint with the Sacramento Kings last year.
Burton wound up playing professionally in Germany in 2014-2015.
In a statement to KTVN Burton said,
" I feel this is a great opportunity for me to show that I can play in the NBA and I'm ready now."
The Philadelphia 76ers are scheduled to compete in the Utah and Las Vegas Summer Leagues from July 6th until July 20th.
