Iowa State stars DeAndre Kane and Melvin Ejim were not selected in last night’s NBA Draft. But the pair will reportedly try to find their way into the league at NBA summer leagues.

NBA.com reported that Kane, a 25-year old guard who averaged 17.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game last season, will join the Los Angeles Lakers team in the Las Vegas summer league. They begin play on July 11.

The Ames Tribune reported Ejim, the Big 12 Player of the Year last season, may try out for two different teams next month. The forward will reportedly play with the Philadelphia 76ers’ entrant in the Orlando Summer league, which first plays on July 5. He is ‘likely’ to play with the defending NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs’ team in the Las Vegas league, which begins on July 11.
