Default Jamont Gordon to join Sixers summer league team...





Hopefully they will sign him.

Gordon goes with agent,ending MSU return hopes

Jamont Gordon's future in Starkville was sealed this week, as he committed himself to agent Mike Conley and made plans to join the Philadelphia 76ers summer league team.

By committing to an agent, the 6-foot-4 Gordon -who would have been a senior next season -rendered himself ineligible to return to school, which already appeared unlikely.

Former MSU teammate Charles Rhodes signed last week to play for the Dallas Mavericks' summer league team.

NBA summer league play begins July 11 in Las Vegas.

He really has a chance to make the team. With Lou Williams already completing 3 years and dominating the summer league last year I doubt he plays this year. Could open up some minutes. Sixers are looking for a pg to replace Kevin Ollie. If they sign Josh Smith they don't have money to sign a solid backup and could get Gordon for cheap. He wouldn't really play. More of a guy to have in case Andre Miller or Lou suffer an injury. But I think whoever impresses the most on the summer league team at pg could get a spot because they need one for cheap.

Why would he sign to an agent after he went undrafted? He should've just went back to school and entered next year. Bad move IMO.

He wouldn't have been able to enter the draft next year. He would have had to pull a Randolph Morris and sign as a free agent.

Remember, Randolph Morris entered the draft after his sophomore season, didn't sign an agent (barely) and wasn't drafted, returned to school for his junior season (and had to sit out like 10 games), and then signed with the Knicks after Kentucky's season was over. He was playing the NBA before all the other junior could even enter the draft.
