Former BYU Basketball player Elijah Bryant has agreed to attend the Philidelphia 76ers summer league mini-camp after not being drafted into the NBA.
Braynt left BYU with one year of eligibility to spare. He expressed his desire to become a pro and chase his dream.
Bryant announced on Twitter his decision to take his talents to the 76ers summer league minicamp. He is one of 7 undrafted rookies to receive the invite to camp. Other athletes with NBA experience were also invited to the tryouts. After the mini-camp, the 76ers will decide who they will take to the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The 76ers invited 17 players to the mini-camp, but only 14 will be able to go and play in Las Vegas.
The mini-camp gives Bryant the opportunity to make the 76ers summer squad, or be noticed by another team looking for summer league players.
Former Cougar Kyle Collinsworth followed a similar path to the NBA. He played in the summer league, made it to the G-League, and now plays for the Mavericks.
Bryant shot 49.4 percent from the field for BYU last season, and 41.5 percent from three. He transferred from Elon to BYU and made a large impact on the team last season.
