NBA teams are beginning to finalize their summer league rosters, and two players with University of Tennessee ties have received their assignments.

Former UT forward Renaldo Woolridge will play for the Los Angeles Lakers in the Samsung NBA Summer League in Las Vegas from July 11-14. Woolridge played for the Vols from 2008 to 2012, but finished his final season of eligibility at Southern California. Woolridge, the son of former NBA player Orlando Woolridge, most recently played for a professional team in Serbia.

This will be his second consecutive summer league stint with Los Angeles.

Former UT forward Jarnell Stokes, who last month was drafted No. 35 overall by Utah and traded to Memphis, will play for his hometown Grizzlies in the Orlando Pro Summer League from July 5-11.

Stokes will be joined by new teammates and first-round draft pick Jordan Adams of UCLA.

Former UT guard Jordan McRae, selected 58th overall by San Antonio then traded to Philadelphia, did not appear on the Sixers’ announced summer league roster for the Orlando league.

The team plans to announce an additional roster for the Las Vegas league at a later date.
