Also don't be surprised if Bagley only plays in the first game and sits the rest of SL.

I'm actually glad Harry isn't playing too. Will be good to see the guys just drafted along with Swanigan and whether or not he will put pressure on the rotation guys.

Anyone watching? Not as exciting for me as last year lol still tuning in tho.

Can we just cut swanigan? Dude looks like he gained about 20lbs this summer.

I'm happy for Skal, but I cant stand swanigan.

Gabriel is standing out.

Developing your two way players is the way to go... Which is why my philosophy of having two 2nd round picks each year is so important. Even more so when high school kids re enter the draft in a few years.

Swanigan is terrible. Guy can shoot it. James has some game too.

James is a natural defender. He has a lot to learn about the NBA game but I think defense is how he sticks around in the beginning

It would be very disappointing to see Swanigan on the roster this season.

Swanigan looked beyond horrific. Could not catch, looked overwight

-Wenyen looked very active all night. Did what he should be doing.

-James also had some nice moments.

I've seen enough of Swanigan to say Gabriel deserves his roster spot.

1. Reward your two way players who develop

2. Kings are stacked at C they can afford to let him go.

3. Swanigan doesn't fit the style of play

I'm not saying Gabriel is good or anything but clearly he is more of an NBA player than Swanigan so if I'm forced to choose I take WG.

Guy sure seems to like to shoot lol.

I didn't pick up much of a vibe from James. They needed to pass him the ball more.

Gabriel very active, not polished, but you can see why he was a two way player.

Swanigan Hey hey hey about all I can say. All reactionary close to the basket, nothing skilled and rushed when it wasn't a traditional post. Why the heck did we trade Skal for him? I mean Skal at least looked like he could make it possibly in the league.

Good thing we got Holmes.

Bagley is OUT for the remainder of the tournament.

Mason is OUT with a hip

Gabriel is OUT for freaking rest

That's too bad, but we should get a better look at everyone with Gabriel out tonight.

Justin James went up for a big time dunk in traffic. He was fouled and missed but the attempt was impressive
