Olivier Sarr is an NBA player. Louis King isn't, he sucks.

I like the effort and energy of this team so far in the very early stages.

Suns Summer League was so painful last year.

ESPN has cut to LeBron courtside like 5 times in the the first 6 minutes of this game, basically once per minute of game action. :roll:

This isn’t a great venue for Ish to showcase his skills other than how his 3 has developed.

Yeah, they have him as the primary action in most sets but the ballhandlers don't have the timing nor reps to work through the play. Pretty hectic up and down the court, typical Summer League.

Ish didn't shoot a lot but looked great. Sarr is an NBA player. We should sign him if possible.

They won handily

They shot the ball much better than the Lakers did. Wainright looked like the best player out there.

Former Sun Paris Bass looked pretty good for the LA.

Sarr played 22 games last year, averaging 19 minutes a game. Yes it was at the end of the season for the hard tanking Thunder, but he produced. Shot 57/45/83. The 45% from 3 was on 29 attempts. I remember he looked fantastic against us to close out the year. 7’0 240, 23 years old. Definitely someone to keep an eye on. At the least I hope he gets one of our 2-way slots. Maybe a full contract if we trade half the team for KD.

He started out terribly but ended the game with a pretty good line. His shot is still wildly inconsistent and he doesn't provide much else besides scoring.

A huge difference from the previous Summer League squad. These guys actually look like they're interested in playing with each other.

I mentioned it in the Off Season thread but I believe Ish is a guy that just "gets it"
Wiling worker, right mindset and understands what his potential role and ways to impact would be ✌🏾👍🏾
