Five Players Who Boosted Their Stock at NBA Summer League

The former Wolverine averaged 30.4 minutes, 17.4 points, and 5.6 rebounds per game for the Heat.

Clarke averaged 14.6 points and his dunk with 10 seconds left in the semifinals helped propel Memphis into the title game against Minnesota on Monday night.

Robinson will look to reward the team's faith in him this season, and he's off to a good start in NBA Summer League after averaging 13.8 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 3.4 blocks while shooting 85% from the field. While several of those players were held out, there were still plenty of impressive performances from others looking to impress that electrified those watching.

"I feel like I'll just fit in perfectly (with Memphis) because his system (that of Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins) and his culture is similar to what it was like at college at Gonzaga", said Clarke.

Memphis tied its league-high 31 points for a quarter when it opened the game with a 31-19 edge after one, while its 56 first-half points were a new team-high for the 11-day event. Bryn Forbes was named to the second team in 2017. "I wanted those guys to become a team". "We knew it wasn't going to be easy, but we definitely have been able to take over this past week".

Second-round draft pick Isaiah Roby averaged more than nine points and five rebounds per game in the summer league, but had a rough outing in his final game.

Jordan McLaughlin added 12 points, and Mitchell Creek had 11 for Minnesota.

"It's all credit to the players, and how they compete so far", Minnesota coach Pablo Prigioni said.

John Beilein coached his first professional basketball games, leading to the Cavaliers to a 2-3 record in Vegas (the Cavs also played in Salt Lake City, dropping all three contests).

As the overall draft class appeared to be rather top-heavy in terms of talent, the games in Las Vegas proved that several players outside of the lottery could have a chance to make an impact from Day 1 for their respective teams.
