A few weeks removed from the 2023 NBA Draft and former Razorbacks are already making an impression in the league. Although his tenure in Fayetteville has been short thus far, Muss has a handful of players in the league for Razorback fans to follow.
During the last few days, all three of last season’s young guns signed substantial contracts with their new teams. Of course, the 6th overall pick wins the biggest prize, as Anthony Black signed a four-year deal worth $32.9 million on Thursday. Black’s rookie deal is the largest ever by a Razorback. Additionally, Black has joined forces with former Hog Au’Diese Toney this summer in Orlando, and the two will share the court during summer league action.
Elsewhere, Nick Smith Jr. and Jordan Walsh also inked their rookie contracts. Smith’s contract with the Charlotte Hornets is a four-year, $12.65 million deal. Jordan Walsh’s Boston Celtics contract is a four-year deal worth $7.6 million.
Ricky Council signed a two-way deal with the Philadelphia 76ers after the draft and is making the most of his opportunity. Council recorded 13 points and five assists during Wednesday’s action before following that performance with eight points against the Thunder on Thursday. Council will travel with the 76ers to Las Vegas to continue summer league action this weekend.
