More summer league updates

Here’s yet another former Husky on an NBA summer league roster — Anthony Washington, who played two years at UW before transferring to Portland State. Washington is listed on the summer league roster for the Miami Heat though he has yet to play in the team’s first two games and isn’t listed in the box scores (I’ll try to check on why or whether his initial inclusion on the roster is no longer valid).
The Heat today played the New Jersey Nets and Will Conroy, which would have been a matchup of not only former Huskies but also former Garfield High standouts.
Instead, Conroy was alone in representing UW and Garfield in that game, dishing out six assists and scoring five points in more than 22 minutes of playing time as the Heat won 90-81. His numbers might have been better had he not sadly temporarily caught the disease of the 2008 Huskies and sank just one of seven free throws. But it’s worth noting Conroy was always a good free throw shooter at UW, hitting 73 percent in his career and 76 percent as a senior.
I didn’t see the game, but I’m told by someone who did that Conroy was put in the game to help try to slow down Mario Chalmers and did a good job during his time on the court, and that many of his assists came on feeds to Ryan Anderson and Brook Lopez . Defense and play-making figure to be Conroy’s avenue back to the NBA and he apparently has shown well in both areas so far during summer league play. His six assists today were four more than anyone else on the team and projects out to 13 over 48 minutes.
Seth Kolloen over at Sports Northwest magazine has a good breakdown of all players with area ties who are on summer league rosters.
