Two former USC basketball players, Dewayne Dedmon and Renaldo Woolridge, played in the NBA Summer League with the goal of securing an invitation to an NBA training camp.
Dedmon first competed with the Miami Heat in Orlando, averaging 1.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in three games. His statistics improved when he suited up for the Dallas Mavericks in Las Vegas, where he averaged 4.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in six games.
Dedmon displayed his athleticism on this alley-oop dunk.
Woolridge played for the Los Angeles Lakers in Las Vegas. With 19 players on the Lakers’ roster, playing time proved scarce. Woolridge appeared in one game, grabbing two rebounds in seven minutes.
As the son of former Laker Orlando Woolridge, Renaldo grew up a Lakers fan. He recently recorded a song, “Purple & Gold,” under his stage name Swiperboy.
