Trinidad & Tobago duo of 6-3 point guard Khadeen Carrington and 7' center Johnny Hamilton will represent Detroit Pistons at the 2018 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The Pistons first game is July 6 at 7 p.m. against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Carrington, who is a lefty, played four years at Seaton Hall and was a key member of their 2016 Big East Championships team which defeated top-seeded Villanova. He is a quick guard who can create his own offense and isn't a bad shooter. In their opening game of the 2018 NCAA Tournament Carrington scored a team high 26pts hitting 3-5 from three point range and 11-13 at the free throw. Carrington ended the regular season averaging 14.9pts, 4.5assists & 3.2rebs per game.

Hamilton played his final year with the University of Texas, Arlington after transferring from Virginia Tech. He finished the 2018 season averaging 3.9 blocks per-40 minutes. Overall his per game average is 11.1pts, 8.1rebs and 2.3 blocks in 23.4minutes. In the 2018 Sun Belt Championship game he scored a team high 23pts with 14rebs and 3blks. Hamilton finished with a single season record of 77 blocks and was selected on the All-Tournament Team.

As a result of their outstanding college careers, the Detroit Pistons granted them the opportunity to showcase their skills. Even though if they are not signed by Pistons or invited to their affiliate NBA Development team, Grand Rapids, chances are that another NBA opportunity or playing professional overseas may arise.

Best of swishes to Carrington and Hamilton in their quest to play ball at the next level.

It's not something you see every day: the best basketball player of a country wishes to become its Police Commissioner.
