James Mays is currently working out with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Orlando Summer League, while Jerai Grant (Houston Rockets) and Andre Young (Golden State Warriors) will begin play in the Las Vegas Summer League later this week. All games will be televised live by NBA TV.
Mays' team has already played one game, with another set for a 1 PM start
Tuesday. He did not appear in the first game due to a coach's decision.
Mays was a four-year letterman for the Tigers from 2004-08 and helped
Clemson reach the ACC Championship Game and NCAA Tournament as a senior.
Mays spent the bulk of the 2011-12 overseas with Mersin in the Turkish
Basketball League, where he averaged 10.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
Grant, a member of four NCAA Tournament teams at Clemson from 2007-11, is
scheduled to begin play with the Rockets in Las Vegas, NV on Friday, July
13. Grant ranked third in the Australian Basketball League in rebounds and
fourth in blocked shots per game as a member of the Sydney Kings in 2011-12.
Young, a 2012 Clemson graduate who led the Tigers in scoring this past
season, was added by Golden State late last week. He will camp with the
Warriors for the week before beginning play on Friday, July 13. Young
finished his career as one of the most prolific shooters in Clemson history,
with 236 made three-point goals.
