Below, some news and notes for Monday...
  • Jeff Foote (Cornell '10) is set to participate in the NBA Summer League in Orlando with the Brooklyn Nets between July 9 and 13. Nets Daily writes, "When your summer league roster has players with more than 800 games worth of NBA experience and two NBA championship rings, you should do alright. The roster is composed of two Nets rookies from last year, Marshon Brooks and Jordan Williams; their top draft pick, Tyshawn Taylor; a Springfield Armor player, Jeff Foote; three former lottery picks looking for work, Adam Morrison, Al Thornton and Julian Wright; an international player, Taureen Green; the D-League's Rookie of the Year, Edwin Ubiles; and a few undrafted players from this year's draft, only of whom, Ashton Gibbs, has been identified."
