Although Kansas saw its streak of having players drafted in the NBA snapped last week, it didn’t stop Lagerald Vick and Dedric Lawson from finding themselves new teams at the next level.
Last week, Lawson signed with the Golden State Warriors. It could be an ideal spot for him considering all the injuries that have piled up for the franchise.
Bill Self admit that he was stunned to see Lawson go undrafted during the 2019 NBA Draft. However, he didn’t make the same comments about Vick.
Despite going through a rough final season with the Jayhawks, the end of which he missed after taking a leave of absence from the program, Vick has an opportunity to make a roster in the pros.
Vick has signed with the Houston Rockets, per SNY insider Ian Begley.
The expectation is that Vick will play in the NBA Summer League.

Vick was an instrumental piece to the Jayhawks during their run to the Final Four in 2018.
In his final season at Kansas, Vick averaged 14.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. Unfortunately, the veteran guard left in the middle of the season due to personal reasons.
Cracking the Rockets’ rotation won’t be an easy task for Vick, but his shooting range bodes well for him in the NBA.
Kansas fans can watch Vick in action very soon as the Summer League begins on July 1.
