The former undrafted free agent is making noise overseas.

NBA: Summer League-New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA season has reached the point where teams begin to check back in on players who didn’t remain on a roster or in the D-League. Former Notre Dame big man Zach Auguste is one such player, and according to league sources, Auguste is generating interest from multiple NBA teams following an 18 point, 19 rebound performance in his latest outing for Usak Sportlif.

The former Los Angeles Lakers training camp player has come on strong in Europe Cup play, averaging 17.7 points and 8.5 points while making 60.9 percent of his shots.

Auguste has averaged 12.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and shot 58.6 percent from the field while playing in Turkey this season after going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, following which he signed to play for the Lakers in Las Vegas Summer League.

Auguste averaged 5.25 points and four rebounds for the Lakers in Las Vegas, doing enough to earn a training camp invite from the team. When he didn’t make the Lakers’ regular season roster, Auguste chose to forgo the D-League route and signed to play overseas during the season and aim for another NBA shot this summer.
