Las Vegas Summer League Game 1: Clippers vs. Hawks


The Clippers play their first summer league game today. You can watch it on Prime Ticket at 3:00 PST. If you don't get Prime Ticket, the game will be available on NBATV.

The Clippers roster:

Reggie Bullock: The Clippers' sole draft pick from a couple of weeks ago, Bullock is a 6'7" SG/SF with great range on his jumpshot. Look for him to get some nice looks off of screens. Don't expect Bullock to be the star of the show or ball-dominant: he struggles off the bounce and was a role player in college. Doc Rivers says we'll be surprised by how good he is defensively, so look out for him to be guarding the Hawks' best player all night. Bullock has a two-year guaranteed deal with the Clippers with two team options after that.

Brandon Davies: An undrafted rookie free agent, Davies (reportedly) signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Clippers, which means he's on the roster, but is set up to be training camp fodder unless he can prove himself in the summer league. He had a nice season at BYU last year, averaging 18 and 8. He can finish with both hands in the post and can hit the mid-range jumper as well. Davies is 6'9" with an impressive 7'2" wingspan (per Draftexpress).

Maalik Wayns: Wayns was on the Clippers' roster last season as injury insurance behind Chris Paul and Eric Bledsoe. He only appeared sparingly in 6 games as a Clipper last season, as well as 21 games as a Piston earlier in the year. He'll start at PG for the summer league team (at least I expect that he would) and should be in training camp with the Clippers this fall, as he has a non-guaranteed contract.

DaJuan Summers: The other player who was a Clipper last season, Summers was waived by the team a few days ago. However, he'll still be on the summer league team fighting for a spot in training camp. He's played in 83 games over the last four seasons for the Pistons, Hornets, and Clippers, shooting 37% from three in his career. He'll likely start alongside Bullock on the wing.

Those are the four main guys to look out for. They should all be starters and all have a shot to get a training camp invite for the fall.

Other players include Jonny Flynn (the #6 overall pick in 2009 out of Syracuse), JaMychal Green (rookie big man from Alabama), Elijah Johnson (rookie guard from Kansas), JaJuan Johnson (former Nets first round pick who played with Boston in 2012), Derrick Lowe (rookie guard from Washington State), Vernon Macklin (Pistons second round pick who played with Detroit in 2012), Jerome Randle (rookie PG from Cal Berkeley), Samardo Samuels (reserve big man for the last three years in Cleveland), and Scott Wood (rookie wing from North Carolina State).

The Hawks summer league team is headlined by rookies Mike Muscala and Dennis Schroeder as well as John Jenkins (ATL first round pick from 2012).
