According to Nation of Blue, former Kentucky back-up center Eloy Vargas will get a chance to play for the New York Knicks’ NBA Summer League team. Vargas has flown under the radar a bit since he graduated from Kentucky, yet he hasn’t given up on his dream of playing in the NBA. Vargas had been playing professionally in the Dominican Republic, averaging 19.4 points and 13.4 rebounds. He was named to the league’s Rookie of the Year.
Vargas’ agent told Nation of Blue that he worked out for the Hawks and Lakers as well.
“Eloy is looking to showcase his stuff for the Knicks, but also for the other 29 teams in the NBA and everyone else internationally. Not only is he healthy, but he is back playing at a high level and it will be a good opportunity for him.”
