Wow, didn't realize we got Daishen Nix.

Charles Matthews former Cat. Dude was super athletic but couldn't play basketball.

Mitch Ballock can shoot the hell out of the ball. Didn't realize his ppg were so low. Fun team.

I remember Matthews at Michigan. Another Calipari send off. He could score off the dribble a bit at Michigan. Couldn't shoot though.

Austin Reaves vs. Dru Smith is like HBK vs. Brett Hart

I wish we still participated in the Utah Summer League. What's the downside?

Would be great to get a look at all those dudes. I'm guessing it has something to do with paying for food, travel, and boarding for the team personnel.

Marcus Garrett looking very good defensively.

Dru Smith flatout stud.

These dudes easily should have been drafted.

Might be the best Summer Team we've ever fielded with a balanced roster filled with young talented prospects.

I mean those costs have to be a rounding error in the grand scheme of running a professional basketball team. I'm sure we spent way more trying to kill Zhaire with a sesame seed.

Finally a Philadelphia team that might make me feel something akin to happiness.

Not watching but hopefully it's Survivor Series 92 and not WrestleMania 12

Dru Smith, Marcus Garrett, Trent Forrest all look good right now.

I love these dribble-defend-pass guys. Rather have these types on two-way deals than the kind of guys (save Paul Reed) we've had the past several years.

Damn, my guy Justin Turner is bombing away for the Spurs right now. One of the best small school creators in the class. 6'4" 205 and a good passer, too. Definitely needed more love.

Utah has the best starting five of the SL that I've seen thus far. Mathias, Hughes, Forrest, Brantley, and Azuibuke is extremely talented.

Brantley is still one of my favorite fringe NBA players right now.

Shawn Long is the reason why Ben can't shoot.

Trent Forrest hitting threes now? Game changer for him, if so.

Return to Philadelphia 76ers
