Isaiah Briscoe is getting his shot at the NBA.

According to Adam Zagoria, Briscoe will play for the Philadelphia 76ers summer league team. If he plays well there, he’ll earn a training camp invite where he’ll battle for a spot on the final roster.

The 6-3, 218-pound Briscoe previously declared for the draft and signed with an agent on April 6th. He had just finished his sophomore season with the Kentucky Wildcats. He averaged 10.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists during his two-year college career.

“BBN, thank you to the greatest fans in the entire world,” Briscoe said via press release after signing with an agent. “Thank you to Coach Cal, Coach KP (Kenny Payne), Coach Tony (Barbee), Coach JJ (Joel Justus), Coach Robes (John Robic), and (strength and conditioning coach) Rob (Harris). You helped me develop my game on the court and helped me grow as a man off the court.”

Briscoe previously received an invite to the 2017 NBA Draft Combine. Being one of the 60-70 players invited to the combine was a good sign that Briscoe could be a late second-round pick. It also helped that he performed well at the combine and during pre-draft workouts before an ankle injury sidelined him for the final week of workouts.
