The Denver Nuggets have invited
former Virginia Tech forward Coleman
Collins to be a part of their summer
league squad. Collins was overlooked
in last week's N-B-A draft, despite
turning heads at the pre-draft camps.

Collins was erratic his senior
season averaging just 8 points and 5
rebounds a game.

His teammate Jamon Gordon also
went undrafted, but he too will get a
shot at playing in the league.

The former Tech guard has been
added to the Dallas Mavericks summer
league roster.


And his backcourt mate - Zabian
Dowdell is now with the Seattle
Supersonics where he will play
alongside Kevin Durant.

Zabe averaged 17 points a game
for the Hokies last season.
