Former UConn guard Lasan Kromah has been added to the Brooklyn Nets summer league roster, which was released on Tuesday.

Kromah averaged 6.5 points, and 2.9 rebounds in 22 minutes per game in his only season with the Huskies last year. The 6-6 guard was a graduate transfer student from George Washington.

Lasan started 17 games for UConn last season, and was a disruptive force on defense, averaging more than a steal per game. He often locked down the other team’s best player.

The national champion Huskies now have four players who will participate in the NBA’s summer league, after forward Niels Giffey signed with the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday.

Giffey and Miami Heat first-round pick Shabazz Napier will join Kromah in the Orlando summer league, as the Grizzlies, Heat and Nets will all field teams in that event, which begins July 5.

Toronto Raptors second-rounder DeAndre Daniels will participate in the Las Vegas summer league, which hosts more teams and begins July 12.

Napier is the only Husky likely to play in both leagues, as Miami will field teams in both Vegas and Orlando.
