Though there's certainly no guarantee he sticks, Aaron Craft will at least get a chance to make his impact known in the NBA before potentially heading abroad to take the next step of his basketball playing career.

Aaron Craft's agent told 97.1 The Fan's Anthony Rothman on Friday afternoon that Craft will play for the Philadelphia 76ers in the Orlando Summer League (hosted annually by the Magic) (July 5-11) and then for the Golden State Warriors at the Vegas Summer League (July 11-21). Though Vegas on occasion seems to bring more watchable basketball amongst the two, Orlando has seen some notable performances over the years. Former Buckeye David Lighty played for the Nets in the Orlando Summer League last offseason.

Aaron Craft averaged 9.8 points per game to go with 4.7 assists this past season, his fouth and final for Ohio State. He shot 47.3% from the field, but just 30% from beyond the arc. At the NBA's draft combine, Craft was fairly paltry from NBA three range and continued to further the idea that he lacked enough offensive presence to be able to earn a spot on an NBA roster.

Here's wishing No. 4 the absolute best as he tries to follow in the footsteps of other undrafted free agents who've found their way into the best basketball league in the world.
