Penn State men’s basketball: Newbill invited to Durant camp

Penn State guard D.J. Newbill has been invited to attend the Kevin Durant Skills Academy this weekend.

The camp, hosted by the NBA’s Most Valuable Player for this past season, will be held in Washington for the top 15 collegiate wing players and the top 30 high school players from across the country.

Newbill, a rising senior, led Penn State and was second in the Big Ten in scoring last season and is the first Nittany Lion invited to the camp.

Also, former Nittany Lion Tim Frazier announced on Twitter on Friday he has been invited to play with the Philadelphia 76ers’ summer league team. The team serves as a tryout for players who were not selected in Thursday’s NBA Draft.

Frazier finished his career as Penn State’s all-time assists leader and is seventh on the program’s career scoring list.
