Josh Lewenberg

Nogueira's advice to Bruno: "It's the NBA, it's American basketball. It's not Brazil, it's not Europe. Here everyone jumps. Keep playing"

Ryan Wolstat

With Nerlens Noel and Bennett back, this is going to be one hell of a rookie class

Josh Lewenberg

Interesting insight from Nogueira, said they don't have athletic players like that in Brazil. "Nobody dunked on Bruno there"

Ryan Wolstat

Wiggins makes it look so easy, yet there can’t be five guys in NBA more athletic than him.

Josh Lewenberg

Mermuys said he wanted to get Bruno back in the game but the rookie was too overwhelmed at that point. Called this an "opportunity" to learn

Ryan Wolstat

Andrew Wiggins was average at best yesterday. Not the case today. Silly baseline jam, a near steal, then a monster block

Josh Lewenberg

Mermuys on Bruno: "You find out what a kid's like in those situations, you find out who they are & we have a great kid, a great competitor"

Josh Lewenberg

Raps' SL head coach Jesse Mermuys credited Bruno for showing emotion. "Im super proud of him... We have a special kid, a special player"

Ryan Wolstat

As Cavs take on Sixers at Summer League, fan yells: “Where’s LeBron?"

Ryan Wolstat

“What should we call you?” (Nogueira) “It doesn’t matter. Lucas, Bebe, Nogueira … afro."

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe also said he told Bruno that on bench.. Tried to cheer him up. Likes his emotion, that game means something to him.

Ryan Wolstat

Nogueira said he will go to hotel and have a chat with Bruno Tell him not to worry “it’s the NBA, not Brazil, not Europe, you get dunked on"

Ryan Wolstat

Summer Raptors get drilled again, this time 88-57 by Mavericks. Hard to find Raptor who played well. Hassan Whiteside DeAndre Daniels maybe

Josh Lewenberg

One to forget for the Raptors SL entry and the team's prized rookie. 88-57 the final.

Payal Doshi

The crowd is about to erupt if Yuki Togashi scores!

Ryan Wolstat

Adam Silver walks by Raptors bench, Summer Leaguer Chris Daniels goes in for the handshake.

Ryan Wolstat

Fans going insane as tiny Yuki Togashi takes a charge.

Ryan Wolstat

Meanwhile, rough day for Bruno. Looked tired. Got dunked on, made a lot of mistakes, was not happy about it. Has not checked back in

Ryan Wolstat

"I take that personally, I take (saying he can’t defend) as if somebody told me I could not shoot the ball."

Ryan Wolstat

"Nik Stauskas on if he gets a bad rap? "I'm white and I'm a shooter, that's what happens, that's basketball and there are stereotypes."

Josh Lewenberg

Another note: Bruno's translator/closest advisor went back to Brazil yesterday. Put yourself in his shoes. Nothing about this journey's easy

Josh Lewenberg

Should be noted that emotion is not a bad thing, especially from a player of his age/inexperience. Shows he's invested, he cares

Josh Lewenberg

Over 5 mins later, Caboclo is still having a tough time containing his emotions on bench. Buycks & teammates offering words of encouragement

Josh Lewenberg

If you missed it… after his 7th turnover, Bruno was posterized by CJ Fair, picked up a tech & walked straight to bench. Was very emotional

Josh Lewenberg

Chalk this up as Bruno's first real NBA learning experience, a reminder that despite all of the upside there will be plenty of growing pains

Josh Lewenberg

Rough game/frustrating sequence for Caboclo boils over in an uncomfortable moment on the bench. Towel over his head, Bruno is very emotional

Ryan Wolstat

C.J. Fair just gave Bruno Caboclo a rather rude welcome to North America.

Josh Lewenberg

Former Raptor-turned newest Raptor James Johnson will also be re-introduced in Toronto tomorrow. Signing will be made official.

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis will meet w/ media in TO after signing is made official tmrw. Tough for him to top season-ending presser but if anyone can do it...

Josh Lewenberg

Lucky for acting head coach Jesse Mermuys, his toughest critic Kyle Lowry is not in attendance. Mavs nearly doubling the Raps, 60-31

Ryan Wolstat

Sure RT @SlamSports: Watch a drunk baseball fan rush a pitcher, chicken out and get trucked by the shortstop ow.ly/z9G84

Ryan Wolstat

NBA Commish Adam Silver taking in this Dallas crushing of Raptors. Hope he doesn’t take away the all-star game as punishment

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors' Summer Leaguers over last 1.5 gms: 33% FG (23% today), 17 ast/33 turnovers, outscored 157-108. All of the Summer League disclaimers

Josh Lewenberg

First half ends (mercifully) w/ a Caboclo corner 3, his second trey of the game. Raptors trail 47-26, Bruno and DeAndre Daniels each have 7

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno is tired. http://t.co/BQ1l1BniKb

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno just did the old Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic thing with the ball.

Ryan Wolstat

Earlier today, Calgary’s @BLOCKchynski had a solid eight minutes for Charlotte, six points, a block and a steal.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors going with the triple Brazilian offence. Bruno is looking for Bebe down low.

Ryan Wolstat

At this rate, Coach Lowry is going to come back and rip Jesse Mermuys again.

Payal Doshi

This is my first time watching Bruno out on the court. He’s a young kid working hard!

Ryan Wolstat

Eric Griffin is your latest Summer League superstar.

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno takes a charge. Also has a couple of steals. The defensive potential intrigues. But then sets an illegal screen at other end.

Josh Lewenberg

Ivan Johnson remains a terrifyingly imposing basketball player (human being)

Ryan Wolstat

“It was always an option for him, I guess, it’s his home town.” Andrew Wiggins on LeBron. Will Raptors be option for Wiggins one day too?

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors trail 22-16 after 1Q. Bruno has 3 points on 1/3 shooting with 1 reb, 1 ast, 2 turnovers & 2 impressive steals in 7 minutes

Ryan Wolstat

Toronto’s Jamaal Magloire has a word for ref who doesn’t call foul as Toronto’s Myck Kabongo gets hacked on drive to hoop.

Ryan Wolstat

Undrafted Dallas Summer Leaguer Eric Griffin can fly. Played in Venezuela last year. Really gets up.

Ryan Wolstat

Stauskas wasn’t happy with his shooting yesterday, comes back today and hits 6-of-8.

Josh Lewenberg

Bruno's defensive instincts are pretty impressive for an 18-year-old, let alone one who has only been playing the game for 5 years

Ryan Wolstat

Caboclo makes bad pass, gets it stolen, comes right back and easily intercepts a pass at other end with those arms.

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno opens the scoring with a three at third Raptors game of summer.

Josh Lewenberg

For the second time in three games, Bruno puts the Raptors on the board, knocking down his 1st jumper, a three from the elbow

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors/Mavs underway from Cox Pavilion in LV. Machado, Hobson, Daniels, Caboclo, Nogueira start for the Raps

Paul Jones

Can't believe noise might shut down the Queen's football program...really!? Get a life people Put energy into something else #laughable

Ryan Wolstat

ICYMI: “What is this, the Anthony Bennett show?” So far, yes: torontosun.com/2014/07/13/cav… http://t.co/VvC2nACwQ7

Payal Doshi

Summer League is no joke.

Paul Jones

Interesting to hear @Phil Jackson talk about @Jose Manuel Calderon and how he values what he could potentially bring to the #Knicks

Ryan Wolstat

Will be talking some Raptors, Wiggins, Bennett, etc. on @TSNDrive at 4:30 ET

Dwight Buycks

Thank you Lord for everything..

Josh Lewenberg

Patterson spoke to the media in Toronto today, said there was never a doubt he'd return to Raptors, happy the core from last year is back

Josh Lewenberg

Still some game left, if healthy. RT @Marc Stein Hearing John Salmons will wind up signing with New Orleans after his release by Atlanta

The big lesson of this off-season is also a Yiddish proverb: Man plans and God laughs. Well, God or LeBron.

Enjoyed the weekend at @ClevelandsHouse ... It was my first time there & likely won't be the last! #ClevelandsHouse (**unpaid shout-out**)

I'm through with my first summer league experience. It is, uhhh, something.

The East is going to be fascinating next year. Probably not good, but fascinating.

Hello Chris Wright following through with the play! He had a nice little put back jam! #Bucks

Caron Butler is not worth two years and US$9-million. That, as everyone knows, is Ben Gordon money.

Payal Doshi

Giannis making a cautious effort to take the ball to the basket. Impressive move the young Buck.

Ryan Wolstat

I feel like people are sleeping on the fact the Cavs and Heat are playing in Brazil this pre-season Figured would be media onslaught already

Mike Malone on Sim Bhullar today: "You can't teach 7-5." Well, not with that attitude you can't.

Eric Koreen

Summer League media observation: David Blatt is going to be an elite coaching quote.

Ryan Wolstat

For those asking about the fouls, you get 10 fouls in Summer League. And many players don’t get cheated.

Ryan Wolstat

Another extremely positive takeaway from Anthony Bennett’s game today: 0 fouls. Had 8 in the opener.

Payal Doshi

"You can't teach 7'5" says coach Malone of Sim Bhullar. #CanadianWatch
