There are a handful of former Kansas Jayhawks performing in the Las Vegas Summer League. Here is a look:
Aaron Miles: Scored two points, dished out three assists and had two rebounds for the Milwaukee Bucks. Miles after a stellar career at Kansas, has struggled to latch on in the pro’s. He is hoping to get a backup job at Milwaukee to Brandon Jennings.
Xavier Henry: In two games with the Hornets, Henry is averaging 25 minutes per contest, eight points, three rebounds and one assist. The guard didn’t play much last year, yet has a better chance this season to get some time.
Thomas Robinson: Robinson is averaging 14 points, eight rebounds and two assists for the Kings through three games. Robinson has one double-double so far.
Darnell Jackson: One of Kansas’s stellar guards during the 2008 title run, Jackson is hoping to get a chance this year. The guard is averaging three points, and four assists per game for Sacramento.
Marcus Morris: The forward for Houston is averaging eight points and five rebounds per game.
Josh Selby: One of those guys who should of stayed another year at school yet opted for the pro’s is beginning to show signs of coming around this year. Selby is averaging 28 points, and four steals for the Grizzlies. He scored a summer league high of 35 points last night.
Markieef Morris: Morris is averaging 24 points, 17 rebounds and six blocked shots for the Phoenix Suns this year. Morris has a chance to make the starting job for the Suns, and his trying to cash in on this.
Tyshawn Taylor and Cole Aldrich both already closed out their summer league play. Taylor for the Brooklyn Nets showed glimpses of being a star in the league, averaging in double figures throughout the summer league. Aldrich., was looking to gain some time after playing mostly on the bench last year, had a decent summer league for Oklahoma City.
