Bagley learns first National Basketball Association lesson in second Summer League game

Believe the Kings’ summer league hype. If there is any. Which there might not

Believe the Kings’ summer league hype. If there is any. Which there might not

The Jazz get a day off on Friday before taking the court on Saturday afternoon against the Portland Trailblazers in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Even in the NBA Summer League, the Golden State Warriors remain the model of consistency and winning.

He recorded 11 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in his first Summer League game, and while he only shot 25 percent from the field, we saw what Allen is capable of as a scorer at Duke.

Utah Jazz center Tony Bradley has been one of the most impressive performers through the first week of NBA Summer League play.

The 2017 AP SEC Player of the Year didn't play in the first Summer League game for the Heat, but then led the team in minutes in the second game, scoring 15 points and recording four steals. Therefore, the Clippers are guaranteed to play at least four games in total in Vegas.

The Pelicans lost point guard Rajon Rondo to the Los Angles Lakers so there are minutes to be had at the point guard position in New Orleans, but Jackson will have to wait until training camp and the preseason to show what else he can provide the Pelicans with.

Former UNC star J.P. Tokoto had three points and four rebounds in 15 minutes for the Warriors. Three other Miami basketball alums will make their summer league debuts on Friday. The Suns have No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton set to make his debut, though it's nearly certain that Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic - the No. 3 pick and whose European pro season ended just days before the draft - will not play in his team's summer opener.

But it does speak to how seriously the players take the games at this time of year.

So far, he's averaged 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game, and looks like he's on the fast-track to National Basketball Association stardom. He's averaging 16 points and seven assists so far in the Summer League and has hit some pretty ridiculous shots.
