PROVIDENCE (WPRI) — Despite not hearing his name called in Thursday’s NBA Draft, it was still a memorable night for Providence native David Duke.

The former star at Classical high school and Providence College announced on his Twitter page that he signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

The first step for Duke to make an NBA roster most likely begins next week in the NBA Summer League. The 10-day event will take place Aug. 8-17 at Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

All 75 games will air live on television on ESPN networks or NBA TV. Every game will also be available to stream on the ESPN App.
