NBA Summer League marks a chance for players to make a roster, get experience at the next level, and impress teams from around the league.
For three former Wisconsin players in the professional ranks, Las Vegas will provide a platform to accomplish different goals. Whether it be a rookie looking to gain valuable experience or a veteran trying to make a roster, Badgers will be on the floor at the 2022 NBA Summer League.
The main event begins on July 7 and runs through July 17 at the Thomas and Mack Center, the home of UNLV. Here is a look at the three Badgers who will be participating:
