NBA Summer League is well underway in Las Vegas — in fact, we’re already in the tournament stage of the competition. As you’d expect, there have been a bunch of youngsters who have surprised (our Scott Howard-Cooper is all over it on the Rookie Ladder) and we’ve even had a couple of shots that nearly made us fire up the Horry Scale.
The other part of the fun of Summer League is seeing how the NBA’s youngsters learns on the job — and on the bench. Not only do rookies get more playing time than they might get on their team come the regular season, but assistant coaches (often the men who lead Summer League teams) get to try their hand at their craft, too.
With that all being said, here’s a look at some different folks participating in Summer League, courtesy of their respective team websites …
