Aaron Craft's NBA dreams aren't dead yet.

The former Ohio State basketball standout went undrafted in 2014. He played in Hungary between two Summer League and D-League stops since then.

Last season, Craft played Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State's D-League affiliate.

Craft, a former D-League Defensive Player of the Year, averaged 13.5 points, 7.3 assists (second highest in the league), 4.6 rebounds, and 2 steals per 35 minutes with the Warriors in 2015. He was named to the 2015-16 All-NBA Developmental League All-Defensive Team in April.

That stint was enough to earn him a flier with the Utah Jazz's Summer League team, the franchise announced Thursday night.

The Jazz's 2016 Summer League kicks off Monday, July 4th against the San Antonio Spurs at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake.

Other former Buckeyes playing this summer include forwards Deshaun Thomas and Sam Thompson with the Charlotte Hornets and combo guard Shannon Scott with the Phoenix Suns.
