NORMAL — Illinois State product Jackie Carmichael has been added to the Miami Heat’s NBA Summer League roster, it was announced Sunday.

The 6-foot-9, 241-pound Carmichael was hoping to become the first Redbird player since 1999 to be picked in Thursday’s NBA Draft, but didn’t hear his name called among the 60 selections.

The NBA Summer League runs from July 7-22 with games in Las Vegas and Orlando, Fla. All teams play at least five games with a tournament beginning July 16 and culminating in the first-ever championship game on July 22.

The two-time NBA champion Heat didn’t have any picks in the draft, but acquired the draft rights to guard/forward James Ennis (50th overall) from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a future second-round pick.

Carmichael finished No. 8 on ISU’s all-time scoring list with 1,580 points. He was also third in career rebounds (942) and No. 1 in shots blocked with 200.

During his senior season, Carmichael averaged 17.4 points and led the Missouri Valley Conference in rebounding (9.3) and blocked shots (2.0). He was an all-Valley first-team selection and picked to the MVC All-Defensive Team.

Carmichael took part in the NBA Draft Combine during May in Chicago.

The last Redbirds to play in the NBA Summer League were Osiris Eldridge (Portland) and Dinma Odiakosa (Memphis) in 2010.
