Although the Cincinnati area didn’t score big in Thursday’s NBA draft, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the players we’ve followed over the past several years don’t have pro careers ahead of them. For Sean Kilpatrick, the All-American guard from the University of Cincinnati, the next step will land him in Las Vegas with the Philadelphia 76ers summer league team. The story was first reported by Shannon Russell on Cincinnati.com.
Kilpatrick was projected by some to go in the second round of the two-round draft last week, but that never materialized, and he became just the second All-American not to be drafted, according to ESPN’s Andy Katz. The other was Scottie Reynolds in 2010.
The summer league runs July 11-21, and Kilpatrick maintains his free agency status despite tethering himself to Philly for the Vegas stint. With a nice performance in the desert heat, Kilpatrick could yet treat fans to new Bearcat in the NBA this fall.
