Let the countdown begin for Blazer fans waiting to see if the guy who gave James Harden fits in the regular season previous year and now that same guy who led this summer league team to a championship will be back with the Blazers. Is this a trailer for a rivalry that will happen in the regular season as well? There was no talk emanating from the Portland front office about whether or not the team planned to allow the July 18 deadline to pass, guaranteeing Baldwin's contract for the upcoming season. "We had two rookies, we had Zach and Caleb who were rookies past year and needed to be in Summer League".
First of all, we get to see the Lakers successful scouting and smart use of their late draft picks. "We're going to have six guys from this team on our [real] team". This past season might have been his most impressive as he averaged 27.5 points along with 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds. Sexton finished averaging 19.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 28 minutes per game.
Josh Hart of the Los Angeles Lakers, a former Villanova star, has been named MVP of the NBA Summer League, the NBA announced on its website Tuesday. He's a tenacious defender with a wingspan for days, and he'll bring both grit and a winning disposition-slash-determination to the team.
James, who watched Hart play on Sunday, took to Twitter to praise his new teammate, who will likely be among his favorite target next season. "Summer League sometimes is really chaotic, he did a really good job of being our floor general", Collins said. "My ability to shoot off the dribble". He ranks 12th by this measure, though we had a larger sample to judge by: He played 224 minutes, more than anyone in the top 10.
Portland became the sixth team-all from the Western Conference-to win the Las Vegas Summer League, joining Golden State (2013), Sacramento (2014), San Antonio (2015), Minnesota (2016) and LA (2017). Mykhailiuk, the Lakers' second-round draft pick (No. 47 overall), made 20 of 49 threes for 40.8 percent.
Portland defeated Memphis 97-92 in the other semifinal.
