Lasan Kromah will get a chance to show NBA folks what he can do. He has been added to the Nets’ summer league roster, which was released Tuesday.
Kromah, who played last season at UConn as a grad-student after graduating from George Washington, earned a master’s degree. Now he’ll join players like Mason Plumlee, Markel Brown, on Brooklyn’s roster. Play begins in Orlando on July 5, with players arriving now.
Kromah, 6-foot-6, was a starter for much of the season for UConn – starting 17 games – and was an effective defensive player, often assigned to the top opposing scoring threat. He averaged 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 22 minutes per game, and had 45 steals.
Niels Giffey will be on the Grizzlies’ roster and, of course, first-round pick Shabazz Napier with the Heat, so there will be a few happy reunions in Orlando.
DeAndre Daniels is likely headed to Las Vegas summer league to play with the Raptors, who took him with the 37th pick of the draft.
