Michigan State’s Durrell Summers part of great draft for Santa Cruz Warriors

Former Michigan State star Durrell Summers was among four players with Michigan ties drafted in Friday’s NBA D-League Draft. Summers was rated by scouts as one of the 30 best prospects in the draft, but he fell to Santa Cruz in the fourth round. Gino Pilato of D-League news site Ridiculous Upside writes that’s part of the reason Santa Cruz had such a great draft:

13. Santa Cruz Warriors – A

The newbies (well not really) to the scene had a very impressive night in this season’s draft. With the 13th overall pick the Warriors landed themselves the talented Travis Leslie. Leslie currently sits as the 8th overall prospect in the D-League and was just waived a few days ago by the Los Angeles Clippers. I felt like Leslie was a definite steal at this spot and then the Warriors backed up that selection with Faisal Aden in the 3rd round, and the 26th overall D-League prospect Durrell Summers in the 4th round. Japeth Aguilar in the 7th round helped round out the Warriors successful evening.
