Eloy Vargas will play for New York Knicks Summer League team

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.”

    I wonder who taught him how to play basketball after he left Kentucky.

    Also….Terrence Jones is playing for Houston, Doron Lamb is playing for Orlando, and Darius Miller is playing for New Orleans. Not announced yet….but Archie is likely to play for Phoenix and Marquis Teague will probably play for the Bulls.

    He didn’t learn anything from my “roll it out there” style.

    Yeah, Calipari can’t develop players at all. Bc Josh Harrellson and Deandre Liggins totally would have gotten into the NBA under pretty much every coach, they were just so immensely talented naturally…
