Ryan Boatright hits game-winning shot in NBA Summer League

(WTNH)–Ryan Boatright’s summer is going pretty well so far.

First, the former UConn star signed a two-year contract by the Brooklyn Nets (with $75K guaranteed). Then, he made the team look good by playing well as its starting point guard in the Orlando summer league.

On Saturday, the Nets waived longtime starter Deron Williams, opening up a roster spot, which could potentially be filled by Boatright.

And on Tuesday night, The Boat Show came through in the biggest game of his NBA career (we know…but still). He knocked down a game-tying shot and then hit the accompanying and-one to give the Summer Nets a one-point win over the Summer Bulls.

Boatright is averaging 14 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game so far in summer league play.
