There was actual news on Tuesday, no really there was.

Brock Motum wasn't selected in the NBA Draft, but he will get an opportunity to prove he belongs on an NBA roster as he signed to play on Philadelphia's summer league team. The summer league is essentially a week-long Triple-A season.

Recently drafted rookies get an introduction to the NBA, first and second-year players continue their development while a host of unsigned players try to impress a team and get an invite to camp. Philadelphia is in rebuild mode and doesn't exactly have a loaded roster so if Motum is able to show well enough during the summer league, he may get a shot to attend camp and try and make the roster. If he doesn't make it, I would assume the NBL in Australia would be an option or he could play in Europe.

Motum will be playing in the Orlando Pro Summer League with play beginning on July 7.

PULLMAN, Wash. - Former Washington State University men's basketball student-athlete, Brock Motum, has been selected to participate with the NBA's Philadelphia 76ersin the 2013 Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League (OPSL), which takes place on the Orlando Magic's practice court at the Amway Center July 7-12, the organization announced Tuesday.

Football:

WSU announced it added Eastern Washington to the 2016 schedule. The Cougars and Eagles played last year for the first time in more than 100 years, but won't wait long for a rematch. The game will be in Pullman and is WSU's second known non-conference game of 2016 as the Cougars will also play at Boise State. WSU should probably just add Idaho to the schedule to complete the inland Northwest trifecta.
