After an abbreviated night of play on Friday, play resumed its normal schedule on Saturday at the MGM Resorts Summer League. As of this time, no word has been given by the NBA as to the status of the 2 games suspended (NY vs NOLA and SA vs. ORL) or the 1 game that was canceled (DEN vs PHO). The format of the league is for each team to play 4 games, then proceed to a knockout round to eventually determine a league champion. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you apprised of the league’s decision on those games.
Making his first appearance in Summer League, Hamidou Diallo made a case to continue getting serious playing time with Oklahoma City. In 31 minutes of play, Hami scored 20 points and had 5 rebounds.
Fan favorite, Reid Travis, also made his debut with Atlanta on Saturday. Though limited to 13 minutes, he made the most of it, scoring 8 points and grabbing 7 rebounds and 1 block.
Aaron Harrison is getting another shot in summer league, this time with the Boston Celtics. Aaron had 16 minutes and scored 7 points as well as pulling down 2 rebounds. He added 2 steals to round out his day.
Wenyen Gabriel remained steady as he scored 15 points in 26 minutes in a foul-fest against China. Wenyen also collected 6 boards, 1 block, and 1 assist. His free throw shooting continues to be less than stellar at 52% but he is shooting an impressive 40% from 3-point range.
