Bryant McIntosh has agreed to play for the New Orleans Pelicans in Summer League, according to NBA reporter Ian Begley.

McIntosh started at point guard for all four seasons at Northwestern and led the Wildcats to their first NCAA Tournament. McIntosh averaged 11.8 points per game and 5.1 assists last season. He became the program leader in career assists in 2018. McIntosh did not get a look in the NBA Draft, but this is a promising sign for him. Congratulations to Bryant, who also graduates from Northwestern this weekend.

The Pelicans have made a habit of signing Northwestern players for Summer League under general manager Dell Demps (the father of former Northwestern guard Tre Demps). Sanjay Lumpkin, Demps and Alex Olah all got time in Summer League for the Pelicans. Hopefully McIntosh can make an impact.
