Three Heels in NBA Summer League

Three Heels in NBA Summer League

The first of the NBA summer leagues begins in Las Vegas on Wednesday, with three former Tar Heels already on rosters.

Ed Cota, Kris Lang and Jawad Williams have all been picked up to compete in the 16-team event from July 6-15.

Cota will play for Washington, after a standout season in Russia. Lang spent this past season in two leagues -- South Korea and Spain -- and will play this summer with Portland. Williams, who earned third team all-ACC honors last season, joins Golden State.

The four North Carolina draft picks -- Marvin Williams, Raymond Felton, Sean May and Rashad McCants -- will participate in the other two summer leagues, which begin in two weeks. Jackie Manuel is expected to select a team this week.
