Ohio State alum Jae’Sean Tate isn’t hanging up his jersey yet — he’s just signed a deal to join the Denver Nuggets summer league team.
For those with bad memories. Jae’Sean Tate played four years at Ohio State after graduating from Pickerington North high school in the Columbus area. He was well-known for a high motor and tenacity on the court, as well as frequently playing positions suited for much taller players. Tate’s physicality and skill seems to be working well for him, seeing as this is the second time he’s gotten an opportunity to show off in the NBA summer league. However, last summer didn’t exactly go as planned.
The former Buckeye will play for the Denver Nuggets in the summer league, per Sportando’s Nicola Lupo. He was scheduled to play for the Milwaukee Bucks in the summer league last year, but he reportedly broke a finger on his right hand, which kept him our for both the NBA summer league and The Basketball Tournament.
