    I ain't sayin nothin. Just merely listing the facts and providing someone else's opinion. I didn't watch the games.

    Takes this for what it's worth, as this is from McCoskey:

    I don't mind the fouls, but 7 turnovers is unacceptable when your not even a point guard.

    I want to let folks know that the vegas summer league is also available on demand, meaning that you can watch it later as opposed to live if you are able to pony up the $15 for all of the summer league games.

    Something to consider if anyone is still on the fence. It's not too late to catch yesterdays game. :)

    True, but this guy was an NBA starter. The goal of all these Vegas guys is to be an NBA starter. You still think he'll have NBA success?

    I liked this. The Pistons got a pretty serious scouting operation. Their top assistant didn't watch the pre-draft workouts?

    I saw the game and found myself watching the other team. Summers' athleticism and skill stood out as he consistently exploited seams in the defense and made some nice shots while getting bodied. Other than that, no one stood out too much. It seemed like the talkie folk focued on Tyreke and Summers. I suppose athletic guys with handles and a decent shot excel in SL.

    He did nothing special, there is no doubt he has potential, but he did not look ready for the NBA.
    I'm hoping to see more from him in the upcoming games.

    Daye and especially Summers looked very good though. If The Juan continues to play at the lever he did, they must as well call it Summer's League.

    Will Bynum was on the summer league roster but now he is not, do we know why?
    I think he showed last year he could really help the team in some capacity, I hope he does not get lost in the shuffle.

    I liked Daye's handle and coordination but you're looking at a 6'11" player that plays better away from the basket.

    Will Bynum's roster spot, role, and money are guaranteed. After what happened to Patty Mills I'm sure Bynum realized it was in his best interest to not participate.

    Yeah. Seeing how he played during the season...he doesn't really need this. It'd been pretty cool to watch him stand out at the point.

    He had the unfortunate occurrence of growing too tall. If he were a couple inches shorter, we probably wouldn't have much to complain about.

    According to the news, Bynum is out due to extenuating family circumstances.

    Dejuan Summers is the real deal.
