The NBA Summer League concluded on Tuesday in Las Vegas. Just three former IU players were involved this year. Here is a quick recap of how they performed.
Preparing to enter his third season in Boston, the franchise wanted Langford to get more experience after playing in just 50 games over his first two campaigns mostly due to injuries.
Langford played in three games in Las Vegas, where he saw 25.7 minutes per contest and scored 11 points per game. He shot 44 percent from the field overall including 38.5 percent from behind-the-arc on 4.3 attempts per game. That latter stat was an encouraging sign for Langford, who has struggled with his perimeter shot going back to his time at Indiana.
Langford added 3.3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2.3 turnovers per game.
Also encouraging for Langford was just his overall health and stamina, which allowed him to produce several highlight reel plays.

Although he performed well, Langford did miss the Tuesday night championship final with a sprained right wrist. He spent much of the 2020-21 season rehabbing from surgery on the same wrist.
Langford is expected to be with the Celtics for the 2021-22 season.
The former All-Big Ten forward was competing for a spot in the league and Morgan saw action in both Utah and and Las Vegas.
In Utah Morgan played in three games and averaged 19.6 minutes per contest. He shot 43.8 percent from the field overall in those games including 33.3 percent from long range. Morgan added 6.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1 block and .7 steals.
Morgan also played in two games in Las Vegas where he saw 18.1 minutes per game and produced 2.5 points over those contests. He shot just 28.6 percent from the field including 25 percent from three. He added 4 rebounds and 1.5 assists, 1 turnover, 1 steal and .5 blocks per game.
Morgan was injured midway through the Las Vegas portion of the Summer League.
The Jazz didn’t issue Morgan a qualifying offer, and he will likely be competing in a training camp in Utah or elsewhere to try to make a roster and get a new deal.
The former IU guard saw action with both Utah and Philadelphia in Summer League games in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas, respectively.
On the same team as Morgan in Utah, Green played in three games and saw 13.7 minutes per contest. He shot 37.5 percent from the field overall including 40 percent from three. He added two rebounds per game.

In Las Vegas Green got a chance with the 76ers. He played in two games and saw 5.8 minutes. Green shot 20 percent from the field overall including 25 percent from behind-the-arc.
Green will likely return to Europe for the 2021-22 season. He played in Greece’s top league with Charilaos Trikoupis, where he averaged 15.3 points and shot 42.9% from three.
