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).
