Summer League dunk of the day went to Toronto’s Norman Powell

Not bad for a guy known for his defense.

Norman Powell was taken in the second round of the draft (46th overall) by the Bucks, but was shipped to Toronto as part of the Greivis Vasquez deal. The four-year player at UCLA’s best skills were considered to be his defense and athleticism. He fell to the second round because he needs a more consistent jumper, but he has the chance to develop into an NBA rotation player down the line.

Oh, and he can finish in transition. I think we mentioned that athleticism already.
