CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- The NBA Draft came and went without a Virginia player selected, but a couple of former Cavaliers signed deals with teams.
Kihei Clark will join the Utah Jazz on their summer league roster, while Armaan Franklin signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the newly crowned NBA champion Denver Nuggets. Former Liberty and Blue Ridge standout Darius McGhee will also join the Indiana Pacers for summer league.
The Exhibit 10 contract Franklin signed will allow him to participate in summer league, but also the Nuggets' team training camp with an opportunity to turn the contract into a two-way deal. The Nuggets could also send Franklin to their G-League affiliate, the Rapids City Gold, if he is waived before the regular season begins where he can earn a $75K bonus if he spends at least 60 days with the team.
The NBA Summer League in Las Vegas will take place from July 7-17, while the Jazz will also host the Salt Lake City Summer League July 3-6.
Clark finished his career at UVA as the ACC's all-time leader in conference wins (76) and minutes played (5,339). The five-year starter also set program records for assists (718), wins (122), games played (161) and starts (141).
Franklin was Virginia's leading scorer in his last season with the Cavaliers, averaging 12.4 points per game, and was named to the ACC All-Tournament second team.
McGhee ended his standout career with Liberty by earning Associated Press honorable mention All-American honors, only the second player in program history to do so. The former Baron also finishes No. 2 in NCAA history with 528 career three-pointers made and was the 33rd player in NCAA Division I history to be named a three-time conference player of the year.
