JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The NBA Summer League is known for being a showcase for the newly drafted rookies to show what they can do on the pro level. It's also a chance for free agents and players who've spent time overseas to catch the eye of an NBA general manager.

Former Florida Gator point guard Scottie Wilbekin did just that and signed a four-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to RealGM.
