The NBA Summer League at Las Vegas has tipped off. For the first time ever, all 30 teams are in participation.
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!
Per Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Donte DiVincenzo did not play in Friday’s Summer League opener. The 6-foot-5 guard sustained a groin injury and although he participated in pre-game warm ups, he did not play in the Bucks’ 90-63 win against the Detroit Pistons.

Mikal Bridges enjoyed a great first Summer League game. He was dialed in from the moment he stepped onto the court. He played a big role in the Suns' 92-85 win over the Mavericks. Bridges cracked the starting five and through 18 minutes of play, he had 14 points, three rebounds and a block. Offensively, he was near-perfect on the floor, going 5-of-6 overall and 4-for-5 from long range.
