One day after Jahii Carson, Jordan Bachynski and Jermaine Marshall went undrafted in the NBA Draft, all three found teams that were willing to give them a shot in the NBA summer league on Friday.

It's going to be incredibly difficult for either Carson or Marshall to make the Rockets opening night roster. Houston already has former Sun Devil James Harden, Jeremy Lin, Patrick Beverley and Isaiah Canaan on its roster and also drafted Arizona point guard and Pac-12 Player of the Year last season Nick Johnson with the 42nd overall pick in the draft.
Bachynski may have a somewhat better chance at making the Hornets roster but not by much. The newly rebranded team in Charlotte already has Brendan Haywood, Bismack Biyombo and Al Jefferson at the center position.
