Because we played in both the Utah and Las Vegas Summer Leagues, we have five guys out for rest.

These NBA Summer League Standouts Could Break out Next Season

Lonnie Walker

Summer League Stats: 24.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 55.1 field-goal percentage, 30.8 percent three-point percentage

A meniscus tear last preseason set Walker back, taking him out of San Antonio's picture for 2018-19. The No. 19 pick in 2018 returned to play 29 G League games and just 118 NBA minutes. Walker will become a priority after a dominant four-game stretch from Utah to Las Vegas. He took over without shooting well from three (4-of-13) by converting 60.7 percent of his two-pointers. Working on the ball, he became more dangerous than in previous years, mixing it up with various dribble jumpers, floaters and hard drives off hesitation moves that his jump shot forced defenders to play tighter.

In transition, Walker was on another level compared to the rest of the competition, flying past defenses with long strides and an explosive last step in the paint. His eyes seemed to light up during those open-floor opportunities in which he could get downhill and leap off full-court momentum.

Better teammates, more spacing and regular minutes could ultimately create a more suitable environment for Walker to improve his three-point consistency. And assuming he continues to build on the mid-range flashes and timely slashes from summer league, the Spurs could eventually be looking at a three-level scorer.
