The Charlotte Bobcats' 2012 NBA Summer League team will feature the Minnesota Golden Gophers' Ralph Sampson III.

Ralph Sampson III, formerly of the Minnesota Golden Gophers, is set to embark on his NBA journey. After going undrafted on June 28, he has made his way onto the Charlotte Bobcats roster for the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Sampson will join 2011 lottery picks Kemba Walker and Bismack Biyombo and 2012 picks Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeffery Taylor on the team. He is one of four undrafted players playing for Charlotte.

The ex-Gopher will share minutes at the center spot with Biyombo, Byron Mullens and Hamady N'Diaye. The full roster is available at Bobcats.com.

The Bobcats begin their three-day mini-camp in Las Vegas on Tuesday. Games start Friday, with their first one scheduled for 10:00 p.m. ET against the Sacramento Kings. All games will be televised live on NBA TV.
