Former Canisius guard Billy Baron will join the Chicago Bulls for summer league, his agent, BJ Armstrong of Wasserman Media Group, confirmed via email.

The Bulls were the first of 10 teams Baron worked out for ahead of Thursday night’s draft. The others were Atlanta, Utah, Milwaukee, New York, Cleveland, Houston, Washington, San Antonio and Detroit.

The summer league, held in Las Vegas, will give Baron another shot to impress NBA teams after going undrafted.

The Bulls traded for Creighton stud Doug McDermott and selected New Mexico’s Cameron Bairstow in the draft.

Armstrong also represents Bulls star Derek Rose.

UPDATE: UB’s Javon McCrea will play with the Dallas Mavericks summer league team.

Canisius’ Jordan Heath announced earlier this week he will play summer league with the Detroit Pistons.

Mitchell Watt, who graduated from UB in 2012, will play with the Golden State Warriors.
