Alex Poythress, Aaron Harrison, Marquis Teague, and Dakari Johnson tip off in the Summer League tomorrow

While you’re enjoying hot dogs and pasta salad at various July 4th shindigs this weekend, three former Wildcats are going to work. Alex Poythress, Aaron Harrison, and Marquis Teague will suit up in the NBA Summer League in Orlando, which runs from tomorrow through next Friday. Poythress will play for the Orlando Magic Blue squad; Harrison the Charlotte Hornets; and Teague the Dallas Mavericks. For Poythress and Teague, this may be the best chance they have to make a team. For Harrison, the only Hornets player on the summer league roster, it’s a prime opportunity to showcase his talents and lobby for more playing time.

Unless it’s in the championship games on Friday, Poythress and Harrison won’t play each other, but both will face Teague and the Mavericks, Aaron on Wednesday and Alex on Thursday. Here’s the complete schedule:
