    Ok, time to close the book on last season.

    Obviously huge news on FA front with the Cousins signing but I’m more interested in summer league right now. It’s a bummer that Evans isn’t able to play (seems like an annual thing with our rookies) but Nunn looked like he might be a contributor. Jones remains an enigma. He’s got a sweet shot and looked good in the spot minutes last year but he has the body language of a petulant teenager. I wonder if we don’t resign Zaza or West to hold down the fort until Cousins is ready to play.

    As to the rest of FA, there doesn’t seem to be much of a market for Looney or McCaw at the moment so they might be back for cheap. McCaw technically got a RFA tender so he’s back unless someone beats that offer. Supposedly Looney is talking to the Clippers but it doesn’t look like anything is imminent.

    Crap.

    Now two threads about the stupid NBA.

    I tried but just can't get back into basketball. It's dull.

    Feel the same way about baseball.

    I want to like it but it just doesn’t do it for me. I blame analytics.

    Back to summer league:

    Much better game from Jones last night. He’s actually downright good at man defense. If he can get the team defense down he might yet be a player. He needs a little more junkyard dog in him but he was a little more aggressive last night than I’m used to seeing him. That jump shot is money though.

    Speaking of jump shots... Jordan Bell is showing off some newfound offensive skills. On the negative side neither Evans or Nunn really impressed.

    One of the knocks on Jones coming out of college is that he had would sometimes get lost when he had to switch up on defense. The other night I saw two times where the offensive player put a spin move on him and had an easy path to the basket.

    Baby Dubs are 3-0 in summer league. Jones, Bell, Nunn DNP and Evans logged like 6 min vs Lakers. The Derrickson kid from Georgetown lit it up. He can definitely shoot.

    Yeah, game was kinda boring without the big dogs (lol) but Derrickson and Omri Johnson both look like they could be part of a rotation. Omot is another guy I'm intrigued by. 6'9 with a 7ft wingspan and a 3 point shot? I hope we can get him on the Santa Cruz team. Nunn is probably guaranteed either a roster spot or 2-way contract.

    Another good night for Nunn, Bell, and Jones.

    Evans doesn’t look like he belongs on an NBA roster right now.
