Former Creighton standouts Mitch Ballock and Denzel Mahoney have signed with NBA Summer League teams.

Take a look back at the last five season of Creighton men's basketball.

Former Bluejays Mitch Ballock and Denzel Mahoney have joined Damien Jefferson in signing with NBA Summer League teams on Saturday.

After both were not selected in Thursday's NBA draft, Mahoney signed to play this summer with the Charlotte Hornets and Ballock with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Mahoney finished the 2020-21 season averaging 12.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals. The forward also earned All-Big East honorable mention.

The Hornets' first Summer League game will be Aug. 8 against the Portland Trail Blazers at 5 p.m.

Ballock started in all 31 games for the Jays last season and averaged 9.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. The guard also shot 38.6 percent from 3-point range.

The 76ers will open summer play against the Dallas Mavericks on Aug. 9 at 3 p.m.  

Former Creighton point guard Marcus Zegarowski was the lone Bluejay selected in the NBA draft, going in the second round (No. 49) to the Brooklyn Nets.
