Former Dayton Flyers guard Kyle Davis made his NBA G League debut Friday for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in a 129-101 loss to the Grand Rapids Drive in Hidalgo, Texas.

Davis participated in preseason training camp for the Vipers, an affiliate of the Houston Rockets, but didn’t make the final roster. The Vipers signed him Tuesday. He didn’t play Wednesday against the Iowa Wolves in Des Moines, Iowa.
