It looks like there will be at least one Brit playing NBA Summer League ball, after Eric Boateng has been named to a team roster.
Eric Boateng, a 6’10 250lb big man who has just finished his college career at Arizona State, has been announced on the New York Knicks Summer League Roster. Boateng didn’t declare for this year’s NBA draft and was expected back in England over the summer after being named to the GB Men’s Senior team roster.
Richards, who was drafted with the 49th pick of the NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs, is expected to be suiting up for the Spurs’ Summer League team.
The NBA Summer League in Vegas runs from July 11th-17th (GB training camp opens up on the 16th), so I assume Boateng will join the team late, however, if he gets an outside shot at making a roster it could mean another man missing from GB’s initial wish list…
