Williams goes undrafted, joins Summer League

By Staff | Jul 15, 2016

Former West Virginia University center Devin Williams, who eschewed his remaining collegiate eligibility and opted to try his luck in the NBA draft, was not taken by any team in the two-round draft held in June. Because he hired an agent, Williams forfeited his remaining eligibility and signed a free agent contract with Milwaukee.

Williams in on the 13-player roster of the Bucks in the Las Vegas Summer League.

In his first three games in the Summer League, Williams has played sparingly and done very little. His first game was against Cleveland and he played two minutes, didn’t score and had two turnovers. Williams’ second game had him on the floor for 10 minutes and he was 0-for-4 from the field and was called for seven fouls. Players are allowed 10 fouls in the Summer League.

In five minutes, Williams did score his first two points and committed two fouls against Memphis.

Milwaukee’s team has its two draft choices from June on the roster.

Should Williams fail to earn a viable contract with Milwaukee he is likely to attempt to join one of the international leagues that have sprouted up in most of the free world.

He averaged 13.9 points a game last year as a junior at WVU.
