UK Fans of the Fourth want a Summer League Update

It’s been a pretty slow Fourth of July around these parts, but there are some updates to pass along from the Orlando Summer League. Marquis Teague, Alex Poythress, Dakari Johnson, and Aaron Harrison all played earlier today, and James Young and Trey Lyles are scheduled to tip off in Utah tonight. Here’s a rundown of how each Cat has fared thus far:

Marquis Teague (Dallas): 13 points (5-11 FG), 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals

An impressive showing for Teague, who also scored 13 points in his summer league debut on Saturday. Here’s a strong “and-one”:

And a stepback three:


Alex Poythress (Orlando Blue): 4 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist

Another lackluster showing for Poythress, who only played eight minutes because of foul trouble.

Dakari Johnson (Oklahoma City): 12 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals

Dakari didn’t quite get the double-double he had yesterday, but did some good stuff today. He struggled with his shot, shooting only 3-9 from the field, but this dunk was fun to watch:

Aaron Harrison (Charlotte): 19 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks

Aaron built on a 15-point showing yesterday with a 19-point performance this afternoon. As we all know, Aaron has a knack for coming through in the clutch, and in the fourth quarter, he stepped up to seal the Hornets’ win over Orlando Blue.

Shots like this will make the Hornets very happy Aaron’s on the roster:

James Young and the Celtics are underway on NBATV if you’re looking for something to watch until the fireworks start (or the rain stops).

      Really? “The party is over” for Trey Lyles, Willie Cauley-Stein, Jamal Murray, Tyler Ulis, and Devin Booker?

      You’re either a god damned idiot, or just a sad little troll.

    I love poythress, but I’d be really shocked if he ever makes an NBA roster. The league just doesn’t a guy who only shows up 1/4th of the time.
