Charlevoix Native Hankins Joins 76ers Summer League Team

Charlevoix native and former Ferris State standout center Zach Hankins has joined the Philadelphia 76ers summer league team for the 2019 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas in July.

Hankins, who led the Bulldogs to a 38-1 finish and their first NCAA Division II national championship in 2017-18 and was named the 2018 National Association of Basketball Coaches Division II National Player of the Year, completed his collegiate career as a graduate transfer with NCAA Division I Xavier University in 2018-19. Hankins adjusted well to Division I basketball, leading the Big East Conference and breaking the Xavier single-season record in field goal percentage.

Hankins is currently an undrafted free agent following Thursday’s NBA Draft.

The Las Vegas Summer League runs from Friday, July 5 through Monday, July 15.
