Lojeski gets a chance to impress NBA's Jazz
The next step in Matt Lojeski's pursuit of a spot in the NBA will take him back to Salt Lake City.
The former Hawaii basketball standout had a pre-draft workout with the Utah Jazz two weeks ago and the team has invited him back to join its summer league team in the Rocky Mountain Revue.
Ben Pensack, Lojeski's agent, said the 6-foot-6 guard is scheduled to report to Utah on Sunday. The Rocky Mountain Revue, hosted by the Jazz, is set for July 13-20 at Salt Lake Community College.
Utah was among three teams Lojeski auditioned with prior to the NBA Draft.
He wasn't among the 60 players selected in last week's draft and is hopeful his performance this summer could lead to an invitation to training camp in October with the Jazz or another NBA club.
"It's a good opportunity for him, he's going to be able to show what he can do," Pensack said. "It's a good forum for him to catch somebody's eye."
The NBA summer league primarily features recent draft picks, free agents hoping to impress scouts and selected veterans.
Lojeski, a second-team All-Western Athletic Conference pick last season, was Hawaii's leading scorer with 16.9 points per game and has already signed a professional contract with Okapi Aalstar of Belgium. A clause in the contract allows him out of the deal if he lands a spot in the NBA.
