The best scorers in Vegas Summer League history

- by

Although NBA Summer League success isn’t always a surefire indicator of future NBA success, it can sometimes give us a good idea of who is going to be a smooth bucket-getter once the season rolls around.

Just look at the No. 2 player on the upcoming ranking. Who might that be? One Damian Lillard, who averaged 26.5 points in the 2012 Summer League action. Some might say he went on to become a pretty decent NBA scorer afterward.

And what about the guy who finished right after him on the list, Lou Williams? The Sixth Man legend showed off his future elite scoring prowess first in the 2007 Summer League when he put up 25.2 points in five games.

Below, check out the best scoring averages in Las Vegas Summer League history.
