The NBA Summer League action in Las Vegas has yet to tip-off, but a few teams in the Utah and Sacramento Summer Leagues got a head start on hitting the hardwood.
Games for both leagues are played on July 2, 3, and 5.
Each time a former Wildcat hits the court for Summer League play, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!
Spellman had a solid first outing with the Hawks. He logged 11 points, six rebounds, two blocks, and a steal over 23 minutes of playing time. He was 5-for-12 overall and just 1-for-6 from long range. The former Villanova big man flushed down a couple of nice dunks off assists from Trae Young. On the defensive end, he had a few monstrous rejections. Unfortunately for him and his Hawks, they lost to the Grizzlies, 103-88.

It might have been a Summer League game, but Hart wasn’t taking it easy at all. Hart brought the intensity to the California Classic opener and even picked up two technical fouls, getting ejected with just over a minute left in the Lakers’ close loss to the Kings. His second technical came after arguing a foul call, after he was trying to defend Marvin Bagley III.
Aside from that, it was a pretty good game for Hart. He tied for a game-high 23 points. In 32 minutes of action, he went 7-of-15 on the floor and was 4-of-7 from deep. He also had three rebounds and four assists. The Lakers wanted to see what he could do as a point guard, and after struggling with some early turnovers, he appeared to be up for the task. Hart showed some creativity in setting up for his teammates. He had five turnovers throughout the game, but only had one in the second half.
