Neither DaVonte Lacy nor Jordan Railey heard their names on NBA draft day, but both will be joining NBA teams for summer league play. Earlier this week, we found out the Lacy signed with the Pacers and joined their Summer League team in Orlando. On Tuesday, it was announced that Jordan Railey had found a home as well.
Railey has signed with the Philadelphia 76ers and will take part in the team's mini-camp in Utah prior to the start of the Utah Jazz Summer League. He is joined on the roster by some noteable players, including the team's 3rd overall draft pick Jahlil Okafor and former Arizona Wildcat TJ McConnell. The Sixers will also be fielding a team in the Las Vegas Summer League, but Railey was not named to that list of invitees.
Railey had previously worked out for both Philadelphia and Portland, his hometown team. Railey was a long shot to be drafted, but an invite like this will give him the opportunity to prove that he has what it takes against high-level talent. Considering the other big men on the roster for the 76ers, including Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and the team's top pick Okafor, the odds of making the team aren't great. But if he impresses people, another team or professional organization may take notice.
For Railey, the mini-camp prior to the Utah Summer League begins on July 2nd, while games for the league will tip off on July 6th. Meanwhile, DaVonte Lacy and the Pacers Summer squad start their mini-camp in Orlando with 2 practices today. The first game in the Orlando Magic Summer League is scheduled for Saturday morning.
