Jarell Eddie Summer League Wrap Up

Today we roll out our final NBA Summer League post of the year, a recap of former Hokie Jarell Eddie, who played for the Washington Wizards in the Las Vegas Summer League. Unlike in years' past, there were no former Virginia Tech players who surprised everyone by randomly showing up and playing in the event (which was strange considering the amount of mutual flirtation between the Houston Rockets and Malcolm Delaney in the last couple of months), unless you count Jarell Eddie's inclusion on the Wizards' Summer League roster a surprise. For more on Eddie and Erick Green, keep reading below.

Washington Wizards

Eddie's Wizards ended up in the Semifinal round, losing to the Summer League Champion Sacremento Kings. While he spent most of his time in Las Vegas backing up two of the tournament's best players, Summer League MVP Glen Rice Jr. and last year's 1st round draft pick, Otto Porter, he still managed to play in all six games, averaging a decent 11.5 minutes per game. In the last game, Jarell saw a tournament-high 21 minutes, scoring 8 points with 4 rebounds and an assist on 3-7 shooting, 2-6 from behind the arc.

For the competition, Eddie averaged 3.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, 0.3 steals and 0.2 assists, while shooting a .32/.25/.60 line. While that won't be enough to get him on Washington's roster in 2014-2015, nor any other NBA team (presumably, though unlike Erick Green with the Nuggets, Eddie is free to sign with anyone as he wasn't drafted by the Wizards), it was a solid showing for him that at least warrants another Summer League look next year once he's done with a season in Europe. For more Washington Wizards (or Bullets) tidbits, be sure to follow SB Nation's Washington Wizards site, Bullets Forever.

As for Erick Green, our friends at SB Nation's Denver Nuggets blog, Denver Stiffs, wrote a piece yesterday about what the Nuggets roster might look like and who would be left out of the rotation for playing time. Green was one of the five projected third unit players who was chosen as out of the rotation at point guard, but at least he was on their projected roster, right? Also, here's what friend of the site Nate Timmons said about Green's roster chances on Monday (something we also outlined on Monday):

"The Nuggets are still in the market for a third point guard, but no targets have appeared yet. Denver could enter the season with an open roster spot if they don't sign any other free agents and that could allow them to pick somebody up during the season as insurance for injury, but the team doesn't sound too concerned about having a full roster if somebody impresses and is available. Erick Green will continue to get a long look from the club."

We hoped you enjoyed our coverage of the 2014 NBA Summer League. Keep checking back with us for any updates on Green, Eddie, Delaney and other former Hokies trying to crack the top basketball league in the world, right here, only on Gobbler Country.
