Former St. John’s forward JaKarr Sampson will play for the 76ers summer league teams.
The 6-foot-9, 214-pound forward went undrafted after opting to turn following his sophomore season three months ago.
“Toward the end and immediately following the conclusion of the draft, my agent [Seth Cohen of Verus Management] received several calls from teams expressing their interest in having me play for them in summer league,” Sampson said in a press release. “Seth went over all the team situations with me and we decided that the best opportunity for me was with the Philadelphia 76ers. I am looking forward to the opportunity, I will be ready and you can be sure I will make the most of it."
Sampson was the 2012-13 Big East Conference rookie of the year. He went on to average 12.8 points and 6.1 rebounds last season.
