The Portland Trails Blazers announced their roster for the 2015 NBA Summer League on Tuesday, and a pair of former Kentucky Wildcats are on it.

One is just looking to break into the NBA and remain with a team, while another is looking for one last shot at playing for a team as his long NBA career nears the end. The man looking to break into the league is Daniel Orton, a former first-round pick of the Orlando Magic in the 2010 NBA Draft. He recently was playing for the Purefoods Star Hotshots of the Philippine Basketball Association before being cut for, basically, keeping it real.

The veteran looking for one more chance is Keith Bogans, an 11-year veteran who last played for the Boston Celtics in the 2013-14 season. Bogans doesn't want his career to end as it did with him sitting on the bench and not playing at all for a rebuilding Celtics team that was playing its younger players more while rebuilding.

Here is the full roster:
