In 2011-2012, Ubiles was named D-League Rookie of the Year, playing for the Dakota Wizards where he averaged 19.6 points, 5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game. He earned a call-up for four games to the Washington Wizards, becoming the first Siena Saint to appear in a regular season NBA game.

The Grizzlies’ summer league schedule includes games on Saturday, July 5 vs. Miami, Sunday, July 6 vs. Detroit, Tuesday, July 8 vs. Orlando and Thursday, July 10 vs. Houston before competing in championship day on Friday, July 11.
