Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

The former UConn graduate transfer will play for the Washington Wizards in the summer league, per SNY's Adam Zagoria. This league starts July 8th and runs until the 18th. Gibbs had worked out for the Wizards, Knicks and Suns prior to the draft and after not hearing his named called Thursday night, he had to option to play for a summer league team, if they wanted his services. Obviously the Wizards potentially see something from Gibbs. 

Coming out of high school Gibbs originally committed to the Texas Longhorns, but after a disappointing season with little playing time he decided to sit out a year and hit the transfer market. After deciding on Seton Hall, he found success in New Jersey. Despite success on the hardwood, issues and incidents in the locker room kept popping up. Ultimately, he decided to transfer once again for his final year of eligibility, choosing Kevin Ollie's Huskies. After a successful season where he averaged 12.3 ppg and shot 38 percent from three he caught the eyes of some scouts and now has an opportunity to prove himself, trying getting a spot onto the Wizards NBA roster, or D-League affiliate this upcoming season. Best of luck to Sterling!
