Former Michigan forward Duncan Robinson and former Kentucky forward Wenyen Gabriel didn't hear their names called during Thursday night's NBA draft. But the undrafted rookies still have a chance at catching onto an NBA roster.

According to a report from ESPN's Chris Haynes, Robinson has agreed to play for the Miami Heat's Summer League team.

Sean Robinson of ABC 10 in Sacramento, Calif., reported that Gabriel will play for the Kings' Summer League squad.

Robinson, who is from New Castle, played three seasons for the Wolverines between 2015-2018. After transferring from Division III Williams College, Robinson quickly earned a reputation as one of the Big Ten's best shooters.

The 6-foot-8 forward shot 45 percent on 5.9 three-point attempts per game during the 2015-16 season, 42.4 percent on 4.0 attempts per game in 2016-17 and 38.4 percent on 5.0 attempts per game this past season.

Robinson saw plenty of interest during the pre-draft process. He worked out for the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.

Gabriel, of Manchester, played at Trinity High School before going to prep school and then Kentucky for two seasons.

Gabriel, a 6-foot-9 forward, averaged 5,7 points and 5.1 rebounds a game with the Wildcats.

Material from the Detroit Free Press was used in this report.
