After spending parts of last season in Montenegro and also in the NBA Development League, Will Sheehey has agreed to spend his second professional season in France.
According to Sheehey’s agent, Keith Kreiter of Edge Sports, the former IU forward has signed a deal with Maritime Boulogne in France’s Pro-B League.
Former Indiana teammates Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls are moving on to the “Super 17” in The Basketball Tournament (TBT).
Watford and Hulls are teammates for Armored Athlete in TBT, a 5-on-5, single elimination, winner-take-all event for $1 million.
Four former IU players – Christian Watford, D.J. White, Noah Vonleh and Will Sheehey – are participating in the various NBA summer leagues with varying roles and different degrees of success.
The standout of the group is Vonleh, a 2014 lottery pick who was traded from Charlotte to Portland last month. Here’s a look at how each of the former Hoosiers has fared this summer:
For the second consecutive summer, Victor Oladipo will be participating in an event with USA Basketball.
Last summer, the Orlando Magic and former Indiana guard was a member of the USA Basketball select team that trained with the 2014 USA Basketball Men’s National Team in Las Vegas. Cody Zeller was also a part of that team.
Former Indiana forward D.J. White, who last spent time in the NBA in 2014 with the then-Charlotte Bobcats, will play in the NBA Summer League for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavs announced their 13-man roster for the Vegas Summer League on Tuesday afternoon and it includes White, a first round pick in the 2008 NBA draft.
Former Indiana forward Will Sheehey, who started his first professional season in Europe and finished it in the NBA Development League, will play in the NBA summer league for the New Orleans Pelicans.
