NEW ORLEANS — Hornets first-round pick Austin Rivers and third-year pro Al-Farouq Aminu are among those who’ve been named to New Orleans’ Las Vegas summer league roster.
The Hornets, who announced the summer league roster Thursday, say second-round pick Darius Miller also will be on the squad along with three others who were with the Hornets last season: guards Jerome Dyson and Xavier Henry, and center Darryl Watkins.
The summer league opens July 15.
Rivers, picked 10th overall, was the Hornets’ second draft choice in the first round. Former Kentucky star Anthony Davis, the top overall pick in the NBA draft, is working out with the U.S. basketball team in hopes of playing in the Olympics.
Aminu started 21 games last season, scoring in double figures in five of his last eight games.
