PBT Extra: Five standout players at NBA Summer League


LAS VEGAS — Summer League ball is starting to wind down, with teams entering the tournament/knockout phase in Vegas.

I’ve spent time in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas watching a lot of Summer League basketball, and here is my top five list of guys who stood out and impressed me.

To be clear, this is not the five best players at Summer League. For example, the Lakers’ Josh Hart is arguably the best player in Vegas, but he’s a second-year player who got a lot of run last year and looks like a man going against boys. As he should. This list is more about the guys who exceeded my expectations.
