NBA Summer League 2017: All the mid-major players to make the cut--Mid-Major Madness
With the NBA Draft now in the rearview mirror, it’s time to turn our attention to 2017 NBA Summer League, as dozens of players battle it out in Orlando, Utah, and Las Vegas to try and earn their way onto NBA rosters.

It all starts on July 1 in Orlando and continues through the 17th. Over the next few days, all 30 NBA teams will release their rosters, and most will include at least a couple mid-major alumni.

We’ll track them all for you right there.

11. Oakland Golden Grizzlies, November 20

Oakland was 25-9 last season, and nearly made it to the NIT quarterfinals (hey, samesies!). They’ll be a tougher test than many of the teams listed above them here, so it’s probably worth reading up on the Grizzlies a bit more than your average “lesser” non-conference foe.

Billy Donlon is the Right Fit for Northwestern--BT Powerhouse
Nearly a year ago, Northwestern was in the same place. Milwaukee had an open coaching job and Pat Baldwin got the call to see if he would be interested. Ultimately, LaVall Jordan would leave his job at the University of Michigan to take the job.

A year later and Milwaukee was in the same place again. LaVall Jordan was leaving Milwaukee to take the head coaching job at his Alma mater, Butler, after Chris Holtmann’s departure for the head coaching job at Ohio State.

This time, Pat Baldwin was linked with the job almost immediately. After another year of being an assistant coach under his belt, and playing an important role in Northwestern’s first NCAA Tournament appearance in program history, his name was linked to the job again.

This time, Northwestern knew it was inevitable. After a historic career at Northwestern as a player and as a coach, it was time for Pat Baldwin to take his first head coaching job.

Any time an assistant coach receives the opportunity to become a head coach for the first time and it is the right fit for them, it is exciting. Chris Collins had the opportunity to help Pat Baldwin strengthen his coaching experience and continue to build his resume in order to become a head coach.

Northwestern basketball wouldn’t be where it is today without the help of Pat Baldwin. He played an important role in the development of the backcourt, including Bryant McIntosh, Scottie Lindsey and Vic Law.
