WSU's Lacy with Indy for NBA summer league

DaVONTE LACY, the all-time 3-point leader at Washington State, will lace up his sneakers starting next week in the NBA summer league in Orlando.

Lacy tells CF.C he will play on the Indian Pacers team in the Orlando Pro Summer League.

The games run from July 4-10 and are held at the Magic's practice court at the Amway Center, according to nba.com.

Lacy finished his WSU career as the No. 5 scorer in school history with 1,548 points. He is WSU’s all-time career 3-point leader with 249 after passing Klay Thompson (242, 2009-11) this past season.

In addition to the Pacers, the 25-game league will feature teams from the Magic, Nets, Hornets, Pistons, Clippers, Grizzlies, Miami and Thunder.

Each team will play five games, with a championship day on July 10 with all 10 teams in action. The full schedule of games and broadcast information on NBA TV has not yet been released.

Lacy and Indiana open league play on July 4 at 9 a.m. (EST) against Miami. They play the Orlando White squad on July 6, Detroit on July 8 and the Orlando Blue squad on July 9. On July 10, every team will play their fifth and final game against the opponent seeded most closely to them in the standings.

Lacy was named first-team All-Pac-12 this past season and led the Cougars in scoring each of his final two seasons. As internet draft sites had forecast, he became an undrafted free agent after not being selected in the NBA draft on Thursday. Lacy has had auditions with four other NBA teams this offseason: Golden State, Washington and both Los Angeles teams (Clippers and Lakers).

The NBA summer league consists of three separate entities: the Orlando Pro Summer League, the Utah Jazz Summer League and the Las Vegas Summer League. Orlando runs from July 4-10, Utah from July 6-9 and Las Vegas from July 10-20.
