Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...

  • The New York Post writes, "from July 9-13, the [Brooklyn] Nets will be participating in the Orlando Summer League, where they’ll get their first chance to look at whatever players they scoop up in this year’s draft, along with last year’s rookies, MarShon Brooks and Jordan Williams, and Jeff Foote, a promising center prospect who played for the Springfield Armor last season and got a brief call-up by the Hornets.
  • In the FIBA Centrobasket Championship for Senior Men in Puerto Rico, Cornell's Jonathan Gray and the U.S. Virigin Islands opened the tournament with a 75-67 defeat to Mexico on Monday (click here for video highlights).  Mexico was led by 22 points and 15  rebounds from Gustavo Ayon of the New Orleans Hornets.  Cornell's Gray scored 7 points (2/3 FGs, 1/4 3 PTs) and collected 2 rebounds and 2 assists (against 3 turnovers) in 18 minutes of action.  He also had 5 fouls.  On Tuesday, Gray and his USVI team get to match up with Jamaica which features three NBA players: Samardo Samuels, Jerome Jordan and Patrick Ewing Jr. 
  • The Pittsburgh Post Tribune writes, "The list of Western Pennsylvania standouts joining Division I programs this fall features Beaver Falls’ Sheldon Jeter (Vanderbilt), Lincoln Park’s Devontae Watson (Temple), Highlands’ Micah Mason (Drake), Central Catholic’s Lincoln Davis (Fairfield), Plum’s Nolan Cressler (Cornell) and Butler’s Nate Snodgrass (Navy).
