Former Kansas forward Jamari Traylor’s run with Indiana’s summer league team came to a close Friday in Orlando.

Traylor, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound backup big for the Pacers during the past week, played a personal-high 21 minutes in an 85-72 win over the Magic’s Blue squad.

The former KU role player, who played 143 games for the Jayhawks over the past four seasons, missed his only field-goal attempt in the finale and went scoreless. But Traylor still made an impact on the glass, pulling down seven rebounds.

An undrafted free agent, Traylor only appeared in one other summer league game in Orlando. He played close to four minutes Wednesday against Oklahoma City, and made the most of his time, scoring six points on 2-for-3 shooting while snagging four rebounds (two offensive).

The Pacers, who went 2-3 in the seven-day Orlando Summer League, are one of the seven franchises that don’t send a team to Las Vegas.

We love you, Jamari. You represent everything a D-1 student-athlete could ever be. We have gotten to watch you grow up and become a man. Deep admiration for you, young man.
