The Georgia Bulldogs have two former players participating in the 2019 Las Vegas Summer League. Second year forward Yante Maten of the Miami Heat and newly-drafted Nicolas Claxton of the Brooklyn Nets will both participate in the two week competition.

Former Georgia center Nicolas Claxton was selected 31st overall by the Brooklyn Nets in the 2019 NBA Draft. The selection capped off his improbable rise to the top of many teams’ draft boards, and Claxton will likely fit seamlessly into the scheme of the Nets.

Nicolas Claxton's interesting combination of skills and encouraging pre-draft process has many projecting him as a mid-to-late first round draft pick. That being said, here are the teams that The Red & Black Sports Desk think Claxton would fit in with the best.

The Georgia men’s basketball team received some bad news on Friday: Only one day after Anthony Edwards signed with the Bulldogs, Nicolas Claxton declared for the NBA draft.

Now with Anthony Edwards firmly in tow, Crean’s vision for the program is looking more and more like the reality. The nation’s No. 2 overall prospect headlines the nation’s No. 7 recruiting class, both according to the 247Sports Composite. Edwards and four-star forward Christian Brown signed their letters of intent on Wednesday.
