P.J. Hairston, Charlotte Hornets: Hairston had his best game in Vegas, scoring 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting. He was 4-of-9 from behind the arc with three assists.
Noah Vonleh, Charlotte Hornets: Vonleh struggled on Thursday. He was held to six points and five rebounds on 3-of-11 shooting. Vonleh missed his only three-point attempt.
Zach LaVine, Minnesota Timberwolves: Following his best performance in Vegas, LaVine had 16 points, four assists, and four rebounds against Sacramento. He was 6-of-16 from the field and 0-of-4 from behind the arc.
Nik Stauskas, Sacramento Kings: Stauskas had a quiet outing with four points on 1-of-3 shooting (all attempts were from three-point range). He did show some flashes as a passer, however, with five assists.
Kyle Anderson, San Antonio Spurs: Anderson knocked down his only field goal attempt on Thursday – a three-pointer. He finished with eight points in 15 minutes of action.
Rodney Hood, Utah Jazz: Hood was impressive against San Antonio, with 19 points and five rebounds. While he’s usually a three-point specialist, he was 6-of-10 from inside of the arc and 1-of-3 from deep. Hood used a quick first step to beat a defender who was overly aggressive on a close out.
Dante Exum, Utah Jazz: Exum struggled to find his offense on Thursday. He was just 1-of-8 from the field and 1-of-5 from three-point range en route to five points. Exum added two assists.
Adreian Payne, Atlanta Hawks: Payne had his best game of the summer league with 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting. He showed his range at the power forward position with a 3-of-5 display from behind the arc. Payne also added three rebounds.
Andrew Wiggins, Cleveland Cavaliers: Wiggins lived at the free throw line on Thursday and was 15-of-20 from the charity stripe. He finished with 21 points on 3-of-5 shooting to go with five rebounds as rumors spread about a possible Wiggins for Kevin Love trade.
Shabazz Napier, Miami Heat: Napier’s shooting woes continued with a 5-of-18 showing against Washington and a 1-of-7 display from three-point range. He had 14 points and three turnovers.
Doug McDermott, Chicago Bulls: McDermott had 11 points and five rebounds on 3-of-10 shooting. He was only 1-of-6 from behind the arc, but his lone three came after swatting a pair of shots away on the defense end.
Second Round Picks
Russ Smith, New Orleans Pelicans: Smith has been an underrated performer in Vegas and had another quality performance on Thursday. He had 19 points, six assists, and five rebounds on 7-of-15 shooting. Smith has shown the same quickness and explosiveness he displayed at Louisville, but has looked much more comfortable as a floor general.
Glenn Robinson III, Minnesota Timberwolves: Robinson III had eight points on 2-of-4 shooting and a 2-of-2 display from behind the arc. He added two rebounds.
Walter Tavares, Atlanta Hawks: Tavares improves with each outing. On Thursday, he had eight points and six rebounds on 3-of-3 shooting. His best play came when he tipped a shot, caught the ball, and found his outlet halfway up the floor.
Nick Johnson, Houston Rockets: While overshadowed by Isaiah Canaan’s 28-point performance, Johnson had a solid game against Cleveland. He finished with 14 points, five rebounds, and five assists while shooting 3-of-11 from the floor and 2-of-3 from three-point range. Johnson showed his versatility on the defensive end as he guarded either spot in the backcourt and even saw some time on Andrew Wiggins.
Joe Harris, Cleveland Cavaliers: The three point shooter lived up to his label with a 2-of-2 display from behind the arc. He had 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting.
Dwight Powell, Cleveland Cavaliers: Powell was held scoreless in seven minutes of action. He was 0-of-1 from the field with three fouls and two turnovers.
K.J. McDaniels, Philadelphia 76ers: McDaniels returned to action after a nagging ankle issue. He had 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting and a 1-of-2 showing from three-point range. McDaniels added three rebounds.
Jordan McRae, Philadelphia 76ers: McRae continued his strong scoring output with 25 points on 7-of-8 shooting. He was 1-of-2 from behind the arc and a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line.
Jerami Grant, Philadelphia 76ers: Grant had three points on 1-of-5 shooting. He added three rebounds.
Cameron Bairstow, Chicago Bulls: Bairstow had his best showing in Vegas with 18 points and eight rebounds. He was 3-of-7 from the field and even showed some range in knocking down his only three-point attempt.
Cleanthony Early, New York Knicks: Early had seven points on 2-of-5 shooting. He was 1-of-2 from three-point range and added two rebounds.
Thanasis Antetokounmpo, New York Knicks: The former D-League product ironically faced the D-League Select team on Thursday, but Antetokounmpo didn’t have his best outing. He was held scoreless and missed his only field goal attempt.
