Perkins will sign with Lakers' Summer League team

Former University at Buffalo forward Nick Perkins will sign with the Los Angeles Lakers as an undrafted free agent and will play for their Summer League team, according to a post Friday on the Bulls' official Twitter account.

Perkins was named the Mid-American Conference Sixth Man Player of the Year for the third season in a row after he averaged 14.7 points and a team-leading 7.4 rebounds per game this past season. No other Division I athlete has earned such accolades.

Perkins also saw playing time in the NABC College All-Star game in April and logged six points.

He was named to the All-MAC first team after the 2017-2018 season, when he averaged 16.2 points per game and scored double-digit points in 25 straight contests.

Perkins is the first UB player from the 2018-19 team to sign with an NBA team. The Summer League begins on July 5.
