Although the NBA Draft is the event that gets the majority of the offseason attention, the NBA Summer League is actually when players start to earn their fill at the next level. It's a chance to validate their selection on the court and for other players to earn their way onto NBA rosters. With this in mind, let's take a look at some of the Big Ten players that will be playing in the NBA Summer League this season.

However, before we dive in, just a few things to remember.

First, making a Summer League team in no way guarantees a player who will make an actual NBA roster. In fact, the majority of the players who compete in the Summer League will not play in next year's NBA season. Nonetheless, many do earn roster spots or find their way into the D-League.

Additionally, the list also clarifies that if a team is participating in both the Orlando and Las Vegas Summer Leagues, which event the player will be participating in with that team. Since there are actually several different events, keep in mind that your favorite player may only be participating in one.

With those thoughts in mind, here is the current list of Big Ten players competing in the 2017 NBA Summer League.
