Kansas has been represented pretty well in Las Vegas for this year’s NBA Summer League. While a bunch of former Jayhawks try to impress their current coaches, they all gathered together during this week to meet with their former head coach.
Bill Self hosted an incredible gathering on Tuesday night, which featured former players and coaches. It took place in Vegas due to the location of the Summer League.
Not every Kansas legend was in attendance, but there were certainly many notable ones.
The list of former Jayhawks was highlighted by Frank Mason III, Drew Gooden and Nick Collison.
Other Kansas players at the reunion includes Chase Buford, Jeremy Case, Eric Chenowith, Devonte’ Graham, Dedric Lawson, Landen Lucas, Aaron Miles, Svi Mykhailiuk, Malik Newman, Tyler Self, Jacque Vaughn and Kevin Young.
This group of former Jayhawks took a picture together at the reunion. It’s certainly a sight to behold for every Kansas fan.

It’s great to see that Self still has a strong bond with his former players. Not every program has the privilege of producing this many professional athletes.
The Jayhawks could add more greats to their program history next season, as Devon Dotson and Udoka Azubuike are beloved players on the current roster.
