I know that the summer league isnt much of anything. Its a place to look at some talent and see who might become a role player and who might add depth to a bench. It gives other young guys a chance to show what they might have, and Coaches an idea of where to start with the youth.
A few days ago, I said I was interested to see what two players in this summer league could bring. I said you may want to keep your eyes on two guys. Can you guess who they were? S. Mejri, and D. Washington. They didnt get a whole lot of time, and it was just summer league, but I wonder if they continue on as they started, for the rest of the week. Mejri got 4 points, 6 rebs, and 3 blocks. Not impressive until you find out he was only in for under 12 minutes, got only 1 foul, and shot 2 for 2. Washington got 13 pnts, 1 reb, 1 st, in under 9 minutes shooting 4-5 fg and 3 – 3 3pt shots. He did about foul out, and shot only 2 of 7 from the free throw line, but you have to admire what he did in such a short time.
Again you may say its nothing worth noting, but if you double Majri’s numbers he gets 8 pnts, 12 rebs, and 6 blocks in 23 minutes, compared to Kanters 3 pnts, 5 rebs, and 2 blocks in 28 minutes. Wonder if you would consider that bench depth. It may be something worth watching in the coming 4 days.
Knight sure looked nice today with his 17 pnts, 6 ast, 1 st in 30 minutes.
Stockton made a showing with 5 pnts, 2 ast, and a steal in 10 minutes.
Interesting day, I sure hope things improve over the coming 4 days. Thoughts?
