    Could be worth mentioning that Will Sheehey is also on the team, and is also a former teammate of the two. But hey, it isn’t my article.

    Will isn’t playing because he went to the Pelicans Summer League. He also has a hamstring injury. But hey, this isn’t my article.

  • He hasn’t played thus far, so thus, not mentioned.

    Fair enough. Understandable.

    He’s playing Friday.

    Obviously, pros like Hulls are allowed to play in this tourney, but can guys from NBA rosters play?

  • If they want their contracts voided, I’m sure they could play. 🙂

  • Is this thing televised? If so, what channel?

    Instead of your snarky comment, you could have spent 10 seconds like me, looked at the boxscores, and then realized Sheehy wasn’t mentioned because he didn’t play in either game.

    I believe you can stream the games if you visit the tournament’s site.
