7/7:Charlotte Hornets rookie small forward Miles Bridges couldn't find his shooting touch in Friday's Summer League win over the Thunder. In 27 minutes, Bridges scored six points on 2-for-14 shooting. Bridges did add in 10 rebounds, including five on the offensive end, and he blocked a pair of shots. That Bridges was able to contribute without his shot falling is an encouraging sign for the Hornets, who haven't gotten the production out of the small forward position that they expected they would when they drafted Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in 2012. If Bridges can start knocking down threes at something close to the 37.5 percent mark he hit in his two years at Michigan State, he could find some early success in Charlotte.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/7:Orlando Magic rookie center Mohamed Bamba made his Summer League debut on Friday against the Brooklyn Nets. He scored 11 points on 5-for-8 shooting and pulled down seven rebounds. Bamba also added in a pair of assists and was 1-for-2 from three. The former Texas Longhorn averaged a double-double in one season in Austin, but his 27.5 percent mark from three was something that needs to be improved on if he wants to maximize his NBA potential. How valuable the rookie is this year from a fantasy perspective will depend on how quickly he develops into a startable big man, as the Magic have center Nikola Vucevic under contract for one more season and could go into the 2018-2019 season with him still as their starter.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/7:Orlando Magic power forward Jonathan Isaac scored 20 points on 7-for-17 shooting and added in seven rebounds in Friday's Summer League victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Isaac, who played just 27 games and averaged 5.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game during his rookie season while dealing with an ankle issue, is projected to be the primary backup to Aaron Gordon this season. His ability to step out to the three-point line, which wasn't on display during Friday's 0-for-3 mark from deep, and rebound the balls gives him versatility for the Magic, but he doesn't currently appear to be a good fantasy option.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/7:Indiana Pacers rookie guard Aaron Holiday made his Summer League debut on Friday against the Houston Rockets. Holiday scored 23 points on 9-for-15 shooting and went 3-for-6 from three. He grabbed five rebounds, dished out three assists, and turned the ball over six times. Holiday projects to play a reserve role for the Pacers this season. After shooting the fifth-fewest threes per game last season, Indiana could use a player like Holiday to expand their offensive attack. If his shots continue to fall, Holiday should have deeper league fantasy value to start the season with the chance for that to grow as his role in the Pacers offense grows.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/6:Atlanta Hawks rookie guard Trae Young continues to struggle with his shooting touch in the summer league. Against the Jazz on Thursday, Young finished with 10 points on 3-for-16 shooting. He was 1-for-8 from three-point land, 3-for-5 from the free throw line and he finished with six turnovers. Young dished out six assists and has received rave reviews for some of his passing over the course of the week, but his shooting woes have started to become worrisome. He's still shown enough in college to justify his draft spot, but if his shot doesn't start going down in Las Vegas, it might be time to drop him in fantasy redraft rankings.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/6:Sacramento Kings forward Justin Jackson struggled during his rookie season, averaging 6.7 points per game and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 30.8 percent from deep. In this year's California Classic Summer League, Jackson is looking much more like the guy that the Kings picked in the first round last season. On Thursday against Miami, Jackson scored 26 points on 9-for-17 shooting. He was 4-for-10 from three and added in three rebounds. This follows Jackson's performance in an otherwise terrible Kings game on Tuesday, when he scored 20 of the team's 54 points. Jackson should be a key piece of Sacramento's rotation this season and is an interesting fantasy sleeper candidate.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/6:Sacramento Kings rookie power forward Marvin Bagley scored just one point in Thursday's loss to Miami. He was 0-for-2 from the field in 29 minutes and recorded three rebounds and a block. Bagley struggled to get inside position during the game, which contributed to his low number of shot attempts. After a promising first game, Bagley has now struggled in consecutive outings and has looked uncomfortable in Sacramento's offense. Rookie performances in the summer league aren't necessarily signs of larger issues for a player, but with some other players drafted around him excelling -- especially Memphis' Jaren Jackson Jr. -- Bagley's fantasy rankings could suffer.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/6:Golden State Warriors rookie guard/forward Jacob Evans suffered a rib contusion and played just six minutes in Thursday's Summer League game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Evans didn't play in Golden State's first Summer League outing, but he scored 13 points on 5-for-12 shooting in Tuesday's win over Sacramento. This injury casts doubt on his availability for the Las Vegas portion of the summer league. If he sits for that, prospective fantasy owners won't have much tape on him come draft season, though his value is relatively low on a stacked Warriors team. He'll likely be more valuable as a DFS option on nights that Golden State rests key pieces than he will be in season-long redraft leagues.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: The Mercury News
7/6:Los Angeles Lakers rookie center Moritz Wagner's role in L.A. for 2018 is unclear after the team acquired LeBron James and have likely entered win-now mode, but Wagner is showing in the summer league that he can be valuable as someone who stretches the floor from the five spot. On Thursday against the Warriors, Wagner scored 13 points on 5-for-10 shooting and was 2-for-4 from deep. He added 13 rebounds and four blocks as well. Wagner could be a fantasy sleeper if the Lakers don't make any more moves in the front court, as he'd mainly be competing with JaVale McGee for minutes.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/4:Sacramento Kings power forward/center Harry Giles missed all of his rookie season while recovering from a knee injury, but his showing so far in the California Classic suggests he should have a key role for Sacramento this season. Things haven't always been pretty for Giles through two games, but he's made good plays at times. On Monday against the Lakers, Giles looked like someone who could be in Sacramento's starting lineup, finishing with 13 points on 6-for-10 shooting along with three rebounds, a block and a steal, but he struggled on Tuesday as the Kings were blown out by Golden State, ending the night with just four points on 2-for-9 shooting, though he did add in four steals. Giles has a good chance at unseating Willie Cauley-Stein from the starting center role in Sacramento. In that situation, he could be a fantasy sleeper.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/4:Sacramento Kings power forward Marvin Bagley has played two games for the Kings at this year's California Classic, and the results have been a mixed bag. Against the Lakers on Monday, Bagley was full of energy, finishing with 18 points on 6-for-11 shooting to go along with six rebounds and three blocks, but in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors he looked like a different player, scoring just seven points on 3-for-16 shooting, including an 0-for-5 mark from three. He had seven rebounds and two blocks, but Bagley's offensive game appears to be a work in progress right now. Still, at this early juncture it might be best to focus on his positives, and his shot blocking and rebounding have been impressive.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
7/3:Atlanta Hawks forward/center John Collins led the team in scoring Tuesday night against the San Antonio Spurs. Collins scored 19 points on seven of 14 shooting and also contributed seven rebounds, one steal and one block. Collins showed the same issues he had in his rookie year, shooting 55.6 percent from the free throw line and picking up four fouls in just 23 minutes. Collins has potential to be a steady double-double threat in the NBA, but he needs to stay out of foul trouble and improve his free throws. Still, with little competition in Atlanta, Collins should be owned in standard leagues next season.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: NBA
7/3:San Antonio Spurs point guard Derrick White has had a tremendous start the the 2018 NBA Summer League. White scored 21 points on 7-for-15 shooting Tuesday and included nine assists, six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two three-pointers. It's a small two-game sample size, but White is now averaging 21.5 points, 7.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game this Summer League. White was able to get NBA experience last season, appearing in 17 games with the Spurs and playing an average of 8.2 minutes per game. With Spurs legend Tony Parker nearing the end of his career, these performances will help White's case to become the immediate backup to emerging point guard Dejounte Murray.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: NBA
7/3:Former Cleveland Cavaliers forward Jeff Green has agreed to join the Washington Wizards on a one-year, $2.5 million deal. Green is coming off a decent season with Cleveland and provides Washington with much-needed depth after losing forward Mike Scott to free agency. Green will likely have a similar role in Washington, coming off the bench and seeing around 20-25 minutes. For fantasy purposes, Green is more of a one-dimensional scorer at this stage of his career and can be left on the waiver wire outside of very deep leagues.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Shams Charania
7/3:Los Angeles Clippers guard Avery Bradley has agreed to a two-year, $25 million deal to remain with the team. Bradley was a huge disappointment for the Clippers after they acquired him in a trade involving forward Blake Griffin. Bradley only played six games in L.A. before requiring season-ending abdominal surgery in February. When healthy, Bradley is one of the better two-way guards in the league, but uncertainty regarding his health after surgery and his role with backup guard Lou Williams and the Clippers has decreased his value.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Shams Charania
