Jae'Sean Tate's NBA dream is alive.
The former Buckeye will play for the Denver Nuggets in the summer league, per Sportando's Nicola Lupo. He was scheduled to play for the Milwaukee Bucks in the summer league last year, but he reportedly broke a finger on his right hand, which kept him our for both the NBA summer league and The Basketball Tournament.
