I figured this could get some burn. Post anything summer league related in here. Roster, Schedule, analysis of games (if you watch like i do :p ) other players on teams we may be interested in, etc...


Last year Selby was a stud in summer league so too much stock cant be put into it, but it is a important time for young players development.

Nice combo forward here, although I see him more of a stretch 4. I'd love to see some shooters added to this team. Maybe Chris Johnson from Dayton, who played on the grizz for a short time last season

0-2

Timma is clearly bit ready, he'll be stashed in Europe. Wroten has been disappointing so far. Franklin yet to play

2-0 in the championship. Maybe they had to warm up longer than usual. :)
Wroten still inconsistent.
