Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin join Summer League rosters

Dylan Burkhardt

Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin went undrafted last night, but both quickly found roster spots for the NBA Summer League.

MLive reported that Walton will join the Orlando Magic for NBA Summer League and ESPN added that Zak Irvin will join the Miami Heat.

The Magic play in the Orlando Pro Summer League which runs from July 1st through July 7th. Irvin will play with the Heat in Las Vegas from July 7th through 17th. Both players will be aiming to impress scouts enough to earn an invitation to training camp and eventually a 2017-18 roster spot.

Walton’s late season charge led Michigan to the Sweet 16 as he averaged 19.7 points and 7.1 assists in the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments. Irvin averaged 13 points and 4.5 rebounds per game and finished with 1,610 career points in Ann Arbor.

They’ll likely be joined in the NBA Summer League by their former teammate, DJ Wilson, who was selected 17th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks.
