Why isn’t Brockman in the summer league? And a few other notes

The links here yesterday noting that a few former Huskies are playing in the NBA Summer League caused one reader to ask why Jon Brockman isn’t participating.
The answer is that Brockman is technically a free agent at the moment. You’ll note that he’s designated as such on the Kings’ official roster. So since he’s not under contract to the Kings at the moment, he’s not eligible to be on their summer league team.
However, Brockman is expected to be back with the Kings next year as he was recently extended a qualifying offer by the Kings, meaning the team can match any other offer Brockman might receive.
I don’t profess to understand all the ins and outs of the NBA salary cap, but I’m sure that probably factors into all of this somehow.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Here’s a good overview of how Quincy Pondexter might fit into the roster of the Hornets.
Charles Garcia again didn’t play for the Knicks in summer league action last night. No idea what the deal is there.
Here’s more on Nate Robinson’s likely return to the Celtics.
— This is a few days old, but Ann Killion of SI.com says the Pac-10 may be in line for another down season.
All for now.
