    Summer League Cyclones

    With today being the last day of the summer league (Expect Brackins to play 20+) I decided to look and see how all the Cyclones did. (And then I decided to post some links here)

    Royce White - Houston

    Video - Rockets vs. Kings | NBA.com

    He started out a little slow in games 1-2 but turned it up in 3-5.

    Averaged - 8.4 Points, 3.6 Boards, 3.6 Assists in 25.4 Minutes
    Best game - 11-10-7 on 4-6 shooting and 3-4 from the line

    Diante Garret - Phoenix

    Video - Knicks vs. Suns | NBA.com

    Came out big in game 1 but minutes dried up in the remaining 4 games.

    Averaged - 4.6 Points, 1.4 Boards, 2.6 Assists in 16.4 Minutes
    Best Game - 8-4-10 on 4-7 shooting with 3 steals and only 2 TO's

    Craig Brackins - Boston

    Video - Brackins' Banger | NBA.com

    Craig rarely saw the floor in games 1-4, 6-7 but in over 20 mins in games 5, 8, 9 he averaged 13 points on just under 50% shooting but threw up mostly 3's

    Averaged - 2 Points, 0.8 Boards, 0.2 Assists in 7 Minutes in 5 Orlando Games
    Averaged - 8 Points, 2.3 Boards, 0.3 Assists in 16.3 Minutes in 4 Vegas Games (so far)
    Best Game - 15-6 on 6-11 shooting 3-7 from 3 with 2 steals a block in 24 minutes

    Scott Christopherson - Portland

    Scott unfortunately only saw action in 2 games

    Averaged - 5 Points, 1 Boards, 0.5 Assists in 15 Minutes (shot 50% from 2 and 3)
    Best Game - 5-2-1 in 17 minutes

    Hopefully he can land himself a good spot in Europe or in the D-League (Energy?)

    He could still frequent Mickeys if he lands on the Energy!

    What was hard to read about that? The OP made an effort to share how our guys did this summer and it was a great summary.

    Re: Summer League Cyclones

    Hate to say it but I think Brackins will be nothing more than a D-League player till he gets a means streak and learns to play in the post more. At 6-10 230 he has the frame to put on another 10-20 pounds if he works at it and even at his current weight he still has the tools to play PF if he would work on being more than a spot up 3 point shooter.

    I was not much of a DG fan up until his senior season but I hope he can find a way to catch on as someone's 2nd or 3rd PG as I think his height and skill set would be a big help to someone needing some bench depth.

    Royce has a great opportunity in Houston barring they don't make some kind of big trade or something. With Scola now gone there should be a lot of minutes and opportunity at PF.

    I love Scotty's game but it just won't translate to the NBA. He's not athletic or tall enough but good shooter like him can make a good living playing overseas.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Was thinking the same thing as you.... I was wondering how everyone was doing and I think the OP did a great job.
