Even though Retin Obasohan was not selected in the NBA draft, he has been signed by the Sacramento Kings as a free agent for their summer league team that will be playing games in Las Vegas next month (July 8-18). Former Bama player Levi Randolph will also be taking part, playing for the Memphis Grizzlies in the Vegas league, while also playing for the Philadelphia 76er team in the Utah league spate of games, which will take place July 4-7.
There are only a handful of roster spots that will be filled by free agents taking part in the summer league, but it remains an opportunity for guys like Retin and Levi to make an impression for NBA coaches and scouts. The summer league doesn't always produce great team basketball games, but if you're a hoops head like me, you take what you can get in July. I'll be watching.
As far as next season goes, the latest on the non-conference schedule, according to Coach Avery, is that they hope to release it next week following the July 4th holiday. They're working to schedule the opening game of the season, and that will complete the non-conference portion of the schedule. The league schedule probably won't be announced until August. We'll post and discuss the schedule immediately upon its release.
I hope all of our readers are having a great summer so far. Stay buckled up. November will be here before you know it. Roll Tide.
