With Summer League beginning today, four former UCF Knights will suit up in hopes to crack an NBA roster.
Aubrey Dawkins, New Orleans Pelicans
While Zion Williamson may be the headliner for the Pelicans, Aubrey Dawkins has the chance to impress under the radar.
Williamson, Dawkins and the Pels will be one of the top teams to watch in Vegas, and their Summer League play begins tonight at 9:30 p.m. EST against RJ Barrett and the Knicks on ESPN.
Chad Brown & BJ Taylor, Orlando Magic
The hometown kids will hold down the fort and represent The City Beautiful in Vegas as Chad Brown and BJ Taylor suit up for our hometown Orlando Magic.
The Magic have a lot of roster spots filled by draft picks and G-League players from their affiliate in Lakeland, so cracking the rotation might be difficult for Brown and Taylor.
Hopefully one or both gets a shot and a chance, because that is all these two are looking for.
The Magic’s Summer League begins tonight at 11 PM EST against the Spurs on NBA TV.
Tacko Fall, Boston Celtics
Tacko will have to wait to make his first impression in the NBA until Saturday when the Celtics face their division rival in the 76ers at 5:30 PM EST on ESPN.
Robert Williams and Chinanu Onuaku are his center counterparts, both of whom have NBA experience, but Tacko should get some time to prove himself in Vegas.
