Jamie Skeen to join Chicago Bulls for NBA Summer League
VCU legend Jamie Skeen will get another chance at impressing NBA GMs since working out in last season’s NBA combine. This time, Skeen will join the Chicago Bulls during a NBA Summer League that will see a record 24 teams compete.
Following VCU’s magical 2011 run to the Final 4 where the Charlotte, NC native wracked up NCAA All-Tournament team honors, Skeen was invited to last year’s Draft combine but was unable to land a spot on an NBA roster in the pre-lockout draft.
Skeen comes to Summer League after spending the past season in Europe, first alongside NBA talents Tony Parker (Spurs), Ronny Turiaf (Heat), and four-year NBA vet Hilton Armstrong, for the French League ASVEL squad, then with Ironi Ashkelon in Israel’s top league where he averaged 9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 28 minutes per contest.
