First Round Picks
Mitch McGary, Oklahoma City Thunder: McGary had another strong game in Orlando with 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting. He’s shown the ability to knock down mid-range jumpers and has the ball handling capabilities to attack bigger defenders off the bounce. He will, however, need to work on his outlet passes after corralling a rebound instead of trying to take it coast-to-coast.
Josh Huestis, Oklahoma City Thunder: Huestis had seven points on 1-of-3 shooting. He was 5-of-6 from the free throw line but will need to improve as a long range shooter.
Marcus Smart, Boston Celtics: Smart arguably had his best game in Orlando on Wednesday. He had 14 points, six assists, five rebounds, and two steals in a win over Detroit. While he didn’t have his best shooting performance, going 4-of-13 from the field, he was active in all areas of the game.
Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia 76ers: Noel had another dominating showing with 14 points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots in 25 minutes of action.
Second Round Picks
Semaj Christon, Oklahoma City Thunder: Christon had eight points on 2-of-7 shooting. He knocked down all four of his free throw attempts.
K.J. McDaniels, Philadelphia 76ers: McDaniels left the game in the second quarter with a left ankle injury. He had three points on 1-of-4 shooting prior to the injury, but might be done in Orlando.
Jerami Grant, Philadelphia 76ers: In back-to-back days, Grant dropped 12 points and raised expectations. He was 4-of-5 from the floor, 2-of-3 from deep, with five rebounds. While his future position is still a question, Grant has shown that he can produce in Orlando.
Cory Jefferson, Brooklyn Nets: With Mason Plumlee sitting out with a foot injury, Jefferson stepped up and had his best performance in the summer league. He finished with 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds and two steals.
Markel Brown, Brooklyn Nets: Brown continues to improve in each game, this time scoring 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting. He also added seven rebounds and three assists. There’s a lot to like about Brown although he may not be a clear standout.
Xavier Thames, Brooklyn Nets: Thames was only 1-of-6 from the field with two points. He added four steals and two assists.
Travis Bader who scored 12 points for the 76ers yesterday on 4-of-8 three-point shooting has signed with the French team ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne.
