Where can NBA rookies prove that they belong in the best league in the world?
Look no further than the NBA Summer League.
Every summer, teams participate in the summer league, allowing them to look at younger players. Typically rookies who were either drafted or signed as undrafted free agents get the most action.
Robert Johnson, who played the past four years at Indiana, will get his chance to prove he belongs with the Atlanta Hawks.
Congrats Rob! 👏

Johnson is a 6-foot-3 guard who led the Hoosiers in minutes this past season. He averaged 14 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. The senior also shot 37 percent from behind the arc. He was not selected in the 2018 NBA Draft.
The Hawks are competing in the Utah Jazz Summer League from July 2-5 and then the MGM Resorts Summer League in Las Vegas from July 6-17.
