Former Arizona Wildcats guard Gabe York will join the Charlotte Hornets for NBA Summer League, it was announced Monday.

York is one of 15 players on the Hornets’ roster, which will participate in Orlando Summer League starting on July 1.

Here’s the entire roster (which includes a familiar face in Gonzaga center Przemek Karnowski):

York was with the Hornets in Orlando Summer League last year, too, where he averaged 9.8 points per game in five games.

York spent the 2016-17 season with the Erie BayHawks of the NBA D-League. In 44 games, he averaged 15.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per contest while shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from 3.

On Dec. 15, York sank 10 3s in one game, shattering the BayHawks’ all-time record.

Prior to his stint with the BayHawks, York spent time with Italy’s Vanoli Cremona in Serie A, where he averaged 4.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in six games before parting ways with the club.

Summer League is not only a potential stepping stone to the NBA for York, but international teams closely watch it too, which could help him land a more lucrative deal overseas.

Here’s the Hornets’ entire Orlando Summer League schedule. All games will be televised on NBATV:
