It didn’t take long for former TCU basketball star Kenrich Williams to latch on with an NBA team. On Friday, TCU coach Jamie Dixon told the New York Times’ Adam Zagoria that Williams will play in the NBA Summer League with the Denver Nuggets.

Williams played his way onto the NBA draft radar with an impressive slate of offseason workouts. Williams was invited to the NBA draft combine after a strong performance in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, and entered the second round of NBA mock drafts toward the end of the draft process.
However, Williams went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft on Thursday night, as TCU’s streak without a selection extended to 19 years. The last Horned Frogs player to be taken in the NBA draft was Lee Nailon in 1999.
But Williams will have an opportunity to play his way onto an NBA roster. Williams had a distinguished career with TCU, averaging 13.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists for the Horned Frogs as a senior in 2017-18.
