JaMychal Green to play for San Antonio Spurs during NBA Summer League

JaMychal Green is one of two former Crimson Tide players that were not taken when the NBA held its 2012 draft. Green and Tony Mitchell were both overlooked by every NBA team, and were forced to set their sights on the NBA Summer League.

The NBA Summer League is a circuit held in Orlando and Las Vegas that allows teams to play rookies, undrafted free agents and other league journeymen in hopes of finding players to fill out the roster or potentially earn a training camp invitation.

Tony Mitchell recently agreed to play for the Sacramento Kings during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, but where Green would play has been largely unknown. In pre-draft workouts, Green was said to be hearing that he would be taken anywhere from the 25th pick to the 45th pick, but that did not come to pass.

On Monday, CrimsonConfidential learned that JaMychal Green will play for the San Antonio Spurs during the upcoming NBA Summer League that will be held in Las Vegas, according to his agent Michael Hodges.

San Antonio is in a position that will allow Green to showcase his talents and potentially earn a training camp invite. Reports from various outlets have indicated that the Spurs could be looking to move power forward DeJuan Blair, and this opening could provide a situation for a young player to find his way onto the roster. San Antonio is still in the process of working out a deal to bring back future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan.

The Spurs will begin play in Las Vegas against the Atlanta Hawks on July 15 at 5 p.m. PT. All games will be available on NBA.com for $14.99.
