When and Where You Can Watch These Former Hawkeyes Hoop It Up
It's hard to say goodbye to your favorite college basketball players. As a Hawkeye fan, the past several seasons have seen some Iowa greats moving on to the NBA. But it can be tough to catch them on TV or even keep up with which team they play for! Former Hawkeyes Luka Garza, Joe Wieskamp, and Keegan Murray are all currently playing in the NBA Summer League and you have plenty of chances to catch them in action! Thanks to Hawkeye Heaven on Facebook for letting us know when to watch!
Let's start with Luka Garza. The Iowa All-American was drafted by Detriot and spent most of his rookie season in the G-League. Last week the Pistons cut him, but it didn't take long for Garza to sign somewhere else. The Portland Trailblazers signed him to their summer league team. Here is when and where you can catch Garza in action this month!

It appears that Wieskamp and certainly Murray will have spots on their NBA teams this fall. Garza needs to play well for Portland this summer to make the team. No matter who you cheer for at least we can all yell, 'Let's Go Hawks!'
