Jarred Vanderbilt leads the Summer League in Rebounds


There isn’t a better rebounder in the Las Vegas NBA Summer League than Jarred Vanderbilt.

Finally completely recovered from a lingering foot injury, Vanderbilt has been tearing up the league with the Denver Nuggets. Last night the former Wildcat made 8-of-15 shots to score 20 points. He made it a double-double by grabbing 17 rebounds. Vanderbilt also dished out 3 assists and stole 3 passes.

After Vando’s crazy night, he now averages a Summer League-high 12 rebounds per game through three contests. He’s also shooting 54% to score 12 points a game. Raise your hand if you saw this coming.

    Always felt like he was one of those guys who, in another era, could’ve been a stat-stuffing fan favorite for 3-4 years. Unfortunately, injuries and the one-and-done desire means we hardly knew him (and many look down on him, thinking he should’ve played even if he was injured–guys like Boogie and KD can tell you how they feel about that kind of thing).

    He makes great decisions with the basketball. He doesn’t play like someone who has sit out a long time due to injury , against popular opinion I’m gonna say this is good to see still.
