After going undrafted last night, two Wildcats woke up to some very good news this morning. According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, Derek Willis has agreed to a summer league deal with the Miami Heat. For at least this summer, he will reunite with Bam Adebayo, who was drafted 14th by the Heat last night. The Heat will play in the Orlando Summer League (July 1- 6) and the Las Vegas Summer League (July 7-17).
Meanwhile, according to Adam Zagoria, Isaiah Briscoe has agreed to a summer league deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. Briscoe worked out for the Sixers, among other teams, before injuring his ankle and missing five more workouts before the draft. Briscoe will likely team up with current Sixer and former teammate Alex Poythress in the Utah Summer League (July 3-6) and the Las Vegas Summer League (July 7-17).
Congrats, guys. Go make us proud.
UPDATE: According to his fiancee Keely, Derek will play for the Detroit Pistons this summer, not the Heat.
