Former Syracuse star James Southerland will play for two NBA summer league teams, his high school coach told SNY.tv.
His high school coach, Ron Naclerio, of Cardozo HS, told Adam Zagoria that Southerland will reunite with No. 11 pick Michael Carter-Williams for the Philadelphia 76ers in the Orlando Summer League before playing for Golden State in Las Vegas.
Southerland was projected as a possible second round pick in Thursday night’s NBA draft but was not selected. The Post-Standard reported that Southerland could’ve been selected by the Spurs with the 58th pick, but Southerland declined because it would have required him playing overseas for a year.
Southerland played 29.5 minutes in his senior season, and averaged 13.3 points and 5.2 rebounds. He tied a single-game school record with nine 3-pointers for 35 points against Arkansas and also set a Big East tournament record with 17 3-pointers, including a perfect 6-for-6 start against Pittsburgh.
In Syracuse’s final Big East Tournament, Southerland was named to the Big East All-Tournament Team.
