Derek Willis to Play For Phoenix Suns in NBA Summer League

This isn’t exactly the “Woj bomb” you were expecting, but we still have some news about an NBA signing.

According to Nicola Lupo of Sportando, former Kentucky forward Derek Willis will play for the Phoenix Suns in the upcoming NBA Summer League.

This year, Summer League tips off July 1 and runs through July 15. So if you were worried this might interfere with Willis’ status as a member of the Bluegrass Boys in The Basketball Tournament (July 19-21 in Lexington), he should still be good to make it.

Willis recently spent his basketball career in Germany and has had a few different runs in the Summer League and G League. However, he has never appeared in an NBA game after going undrafted in 2017.

Good luck to Willis!
