To be fair, neither of our draft picks are in SL as of now. I would imagine at least one if not both would have made the top 50 otherwise.


There are numerous players listed that won't be on their summer league team till after draft day trades are completed tomorrow. So that isn't the reason

My hope....HOPE....is that our Summer League team and Regular Season team are placed as bottom dwellers/underdog status. That way, they have a chip on their shoulders and wreak havoc, ala AZ Cardinals a few years ago.

You guys have to watch the Philly vs MIL game. Koumadje is killing it! Blocked a dunk that will probably be on Sportscenter! 7'4" guy who knows how not to bring the ball down and just dunk or shot on lobs.

Pelle looks good, too. Pelle is a very atletic big.

Philly finding some players. Zaire Smith on their Summer League team too.

Philly might be tough to beat.

I am looking forward to watching Jalen Lecque. Hope he shows some skills to be a PG of the future.

Cam and Jerome are not playing as they are not technically Suns players yet. They should hopefully sign tomorrow and join the SL team after that.

This kid will be fun to watch, but I have no illusions of a real NBA career for him.

I'm holding out some hope for Spalding and hoping Owens shows something. For once I'm not worried about how our PG's look. I'd like to see Okobo do well though.

Coby White looking real good in Summer League! Looks Haeden-esque against this competition.

Nick Perkins for the Lakers looks like a clone of Julius Randle. Even looks like him from a distance.

So Zion is putting on a show but if you are watching it he has been blocked 3 times which is something I was wondering would happen as he adjusts to NBA life, he really needs to fix his shooting if he wants to be a star he can't shoot so slow and flat in the NBA

Oh boy, the hot takes of summer league.

Not trying to pick on you Yuma but every season there are some wild statements made about what is generally an exhibition tournament with a level of play so terrible that it is almost impossible to project anything from.

I swear, I should go back through Summer Leagues of year's gone by. Kelly Olynuk had locked up rookie of the year by halftime of his first summer league game according to one poster, Kevin Knox was the steal of the draft last year, Trevon Duval was going to make CP3 expendable.

And of course, our own future stud, Dionte Christmas.
