The NBA Summer League out in Vegas has come to a close, and 3 former NC State basketball players will now wait and see if they did enough to impress. Last night Brandon Costner finished out his week of play one point shy of double-digits. Brandon had 9 points (2-7 FG) and 6 rebounds in 20 minutes of action in a game in which Chicago beat Minnesota 93-85. In 3 games Costner averaged 11 points (42% FG, 39% 3FG and 73% FT).
Cedric Simmons finished the week shooting the ball well. Last night Ced City had 8 points (3-5 FG), 5 rebounds and 2 blocks. Simmons played 18 minutes in the Nuggets 107-105 victory over the Hornets. In 5 games Simmons averaged 7 points (45% FG) and 7 boards.
Ben McCauley finished up earlier in the week, but I doubt many of the scouts forgot him. Ben was a model of consistent play, averaging 12 points (52% FG) and 8 rebounds, seeing action in all 5 games for the Lakers.
Each of these players will be waiting to find out where they will be playing basketball next. We will be looking into each players situation and hope to be able to provide you with information soon.
Also, many of you have been curious about what happened with Julius Hodge and the Chicago Bulls. We are trying our best to track down some answers for you.
