As an intriguing prospect in Europe, the Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz are keeping tabs on undrafted Iowa State guard DeAndre Kane, league sources told RealGM.
Kane, a rookie, has averaged 14 points, 5.7 rebounds and five assists in the EuroChallenge for Antwerp in Belgium. Although his deal with the club is expected to run through the remainder of the NBA’s regular season, Kane will likely be a free-agent workout candidate and summer league participant for those NBA teams interested.
In his senior season at Iowa State, Kane played 36 games while averaging 17.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists. He led the university to the Sweet Sixteen and emerged as a player invited to last May’s draft combine in Chicago.
After going unselected in the draft, the 6-foot-4 Kane played for the Los Angeles Lakers in the July summer league, where he averaged 5.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 19.7 minutes per game.
