Temple’s Shizz Alston will play in the NBA summer league with the Indiana Pacers.

“I thought I had a good workout with them and a good relationship with the coaching staff,” Alston told the Inky. “I feel it is good fit for me, and they had seen me play all year.”

Indiana was among seven teams with which Alston had a pre-draft workout. He worked out for the Pacers a day before participating in a Sixers workout.

The 6-4 combo guard led the AAC in scoring with a 19.7 average and .908 free-throw percentage. He also averaged 5.0 assists. He scored 1,597 career points, 13th on the all-time Temple list.
