Wink to play for Knicks in Vegas summer league

Former UNLV guard Wink Adams said Sunday night that he will play for the New York Knicks squad in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

On television station Fox 5 in Las Vegas, Adams said the only person who was more overjoyed about that news from his agent was his mother, Reandre, in Houston.

Adams said he heard her put the phone down. “Then she went crazy,” he said. “I heard her running through the house.”

All four years he played for the Rebels, he said, he watched the pros play summer ball on the courts he practiced and played on. Now, he's excited to be wearing one of those uniforms.

The Knicks’ summer team is scheduled to play its first game July 14, at 3 p.m., against Memphis at the Cox Pavilion.

“I’ve been working out and preparing myself,” Adams said, “and I’m ready to go out and play.”

He said he hopes he does well enough this summer to get an invitation to the Knicks’ preseason mini-camp in New York.
