2019 Phoenix Suns Summer League

Post by Superbone » Tue Jul 02, 2019 9:38 pm

Let’s talk everything summer Suns here.

Here’s the schedule for their first 4 games. Unfortunately, I don’t think Cam or Jerome can play game 1.

Friday, July 5 - Denver - Thomas & Mack Center - 8:30 p.m. - ESPN

Sunday, July 7 - New York - Thomas & Mack Center - 6:30 p.m. - ESPN

Tuesday, July 9 - Memphis - Thomas & Mack Center - 4:30 p.m. - NBA TV

Wednesday, July 10 - San Antonio - Cox Pavilion - 6:00 p.m. - NBA TV

Have they decided on a roster yet?

Also, I've seen that a lot of games are showing on NBAtv, but I've been able to watch all of them through the WatchESPN app. So don't be deterred by that.

Wow, no Mikal, Melton or Okobo? That seems really surprising to me. I like Salt from VA. Tough kid.

Why wouldn't Melton and Okobo play if they're still on the roster? If we have to move one of them, wouldn't it be better to see them in live action first?

Also, don't rob us of the annual tradition of being immediately and severely disappointed in how one of our sophomores looks in SL (Chriss, Jackson).

Maybe they are on the move already and the team is not risking injury problems.

On the other hand, I found this game 1 preview on Suns.com:
POTENTIAL KEY OPPONENTS: Michael Porter Jr., Jarred Vanderbilt, Thomas Welsh

Phoenix Suns fans will get a first look at the Summer Suns on one of the biggest stages in Las Vegas as the headlioners for headlining the first night of Summer League as they tip-off against the Denver Nuggets. It may be the first viewing of the Nuggets 2018 first round pick in Michael Porter Jr. as he will potentially face his 2018 rookie class members in Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, Elie Okobo, De’Anthony Melton, George King and Ray Spalding.

Oh shoot. Not even Spalding or King are on the roster either? This is odd to me.

I knew that they renounced his rights, but the thought was that they could still bring him back.

Obviously they are not planning on keeping Melton, Okobo, or King.

My bet was that they'd keep one of Melton or Okobo.

I kind of understand Ayton not playing but why not Bridges? And that tweet doesn't even include our two new rookie draft picks. You can't even mention them until game 2?

Cam and Ty are technically not Phoenix Suns players yet, so they can't be included on the roster atm. Kinda silly, I guess.

Not sure why Bridges, Melton, and King aren't on the roster, though. Very strange.

Let's just hope the rookies can play on Sunday.

Sounds like King was on the Jazz roster. Not a huge loss, imo. I thought it was a dumb pick when it happened, tbh.

Not silly at all. A team could still back out of the trades if they wanted to. It’s all verbal at this point. We once thought we had Steph Curry on our team.

I understand not being allowed to play, but there doesn’t seem much harm in penciling them in.
