Former Indiana forward Troy Williams, who went undrafted on Thursday night in the 2016 NBA draft at the Barclays Center, has agreed to a summer league deal with the Phoenix Suns.

The 6-foot-7 Williams, who left Indiana early for the NBA following his junior season, will have to play his way onto a roster without a guaranteed contract.

His opportunity will begin in July as he suits up for Phoenix in the Vegas summer league, which runs July 8-18 on the campus of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

Williams is the fourth player to leave Indiana to play professionally with eligibility remaining under Tom Crean, but the first to go undrafted by the NBA.

Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo were both lottery picks in 2013 and Noah Vonleh was a lottery pick in 2014.

In 99 carer games for the Hoosiers, Williams averaged 11.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
