According to Marcus Fuller of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the following University of Minnesota Gophers will be playing in the Howard Pulley Pro City Summer League: Maverick Ahanmisi, Mo Walker, Wally Ellenson, Joey King, Andre Hollins, Charles Buggs, Austin Hollins, Elliott Eliason, Malik Smith, Daquein McNeal, Dre Mathieu, Kendal Shell, and Oto Osenieks.
Also Fuller said, “The three newcomers (Smith, McNeal and Mathieu) are expected to be on former NBA player Troy Bell’s team in the Pulley league this summer. But Mathieu probably won’t be joining the Gophers until August because he has to finish summer school at Central Arizona Community College.”

Pulley said that his top AAU team led by Apple Valley’s Tyus Jones and DeLaSalle’s Reid Travis would be participating in the Pro-Am to prepare for the Nike Peach Jam championships next month.
“The Pulley League might be the last opportunity for fans to see Jones and Travis playing locally on the same team.” Fuller said.

Games are free of charge and will be played at the High Performance Academy in Eagan, Minnesota.
