Miami basketball alums Jordan Miller and Isaiah Wong concluded their runs in the 2024 NBA Summer League on Sunday. Miller played for the Los Angeles Clippers who finished 3-2 in Las Vegas and Wong for the Indiana Pacers who had a 2-3 record. Wong signed a two-way contract between the Pacers and their G-League team.

Jordan Miller has not yet signed a contract with the Clippers. Isaiah Wong is one of eight 2024 NBA second-round draftees to sign a two-way contract. Miller is one of only eight 2024 NBA Draftees who have not signed a contract. With the Clippers in training camp Miller will likely have to compete for a roster spot

Miller averaged 6.8 points per game, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals while shooting 43.8 percent from the floor, 30 percent on three-point attempts and 60 percent from the free throw line. After being known for his efficiency with Miami, Miller will need to be more consistent during the NBA pre-season.

Wong averaged 11.8 PPG, 1.4 RPG and 2.6 APG while averaging 45.2 percent from the floor, 40.0 percent on three-point shots and 68.4 percent on three-point attempts. With the two-way contact, the future for Wong is more secure than Miller. Wong joins a young franchise he can grow with.

The Clippers expect to win now instead of building for the future like the Pacers. Veterans Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and Russell Westbrook are at the end of their careers. Earning a two-way contract would be beneficial for Miller. Miller would be able to gain experience in the NBA and playing time in the G-League.

Training camp and NBA preseason games will be critical for Miller and Wong to make an impact when provided the opportunity. Several players this summer outperformed them. Wong was more impactful than Miller when provided significant playing time. Wong will have a chance to be mentored by Miami alum Bruce Brown.
