More on Summer League Rosters

Susie Giese: Big news coming out of the US that @WarrnamboolS' & @Adelaide36ers' Nathan Sobey has signed with Utah Jazz for summer league @WboolStandard
Baker, 24, said he’s unclear if he’ll visit other clubs and stressed his agents are in charge. “It’s kind of up in the air,’’ Baker said of summer-league. “I’m not sure how the (free-agent) process works. I think I played a lot of quality minutes. I feel like the Knicks and other organizations know what I bring. Not that I’m shying away from summer league. Free agency is obviously a very important part of an athlete’s career. The decision not to play might be better than to actually play sometimes .’’
IThe Celtics likely will have the most intriguing summer league team in Utah and Las Vegas when play begins next month. In addition to adding the No. 1 overall pick and potentially three second-round choices, director of player personnel Austin Ainge said Boston’s core of returning players is expected to include Jaylen Brown, Jordan Mickey, Ante Zizic and Demetrius Jackson, among others.
But 6-foot-9-inch forward Guerschon Yabusele remains sidelined after undergoing surgery last month to have bone spurs removed from his ankles. Ainge said that Yabusele will not accompany the team during summer league play, instead remaining in Boston to maintain his rehabilitation schedule.
Rod Beard: It appears that Henry Ellenson will be #Pistons focal point at summer league. If they keep the draft pick, he will be a second key player.
As reported by French journal Var-Matin (h/t to BeBasket.fr), French forward William Howard, who recently signed a one-year deal with Limoges CSP, is expected to join the Memphis Grizzlies in July to play in the Summer League. Howard played in Pro B this season with Hyeres-Toulon, averaging 9.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
Mitchell Creek, who has already locked in a Summer League spot with the Utah Jazz, will participate in Utah’s free agent mini-camp ahead of playing with the Jazz in both the Salt Lake City (July 3-6) and Las Vegas (July 7-17) Summer Leagues.
Nets Daily: Told Prince Ibeh is working out with Nets this summer. After going undrafted out of Texas he joined LI Nets last year. 6'11' C 7'5" wingspan. Ibeh @P33zus was DPOY in Big12. Lobs and blocks guy.
Do you plan on playing summer league with Denver? Juan Hernangomez: Yeah, I think I’m going to play summer league. I like to compete. They asked me if I was down for it and I really would like to go and play a couple of games, be around the team and keep developing as a player.
Zizic is expected to join the Celtics once his Turkish season is complete and should play in summer league. Yabusele will be able to resume basketball activities this summer and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
David 'Dubi' Pick: L.A. Clippers and James Bell, I'm told, agreed on Summer League deal. He's an MVP contender for No. 1 seed in Israel.
Owner Mark Cuban declined to comment about Ding. He said more will be known after July 1 when the signing can become official. However, Cuban last year hired a Mandarin-speaking employee, Ryan Kline. He is from Dallas and attended Yale. He, too, declined to talk about the impact that Ding might have on the Mavericks off the court.
Vincent Ellis: Another tidbit, SVG: Stanley Johnson likely won't play at Orlando Pro Summer League for Detroit Pistons on.freep.com/2qDWT6L via @freep
The Mavericks have put the wheels in motion to sign veteran Chinese swingman Ding Jinhui this summer and have him play in their summer league and likely be on their training camp roster, president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said.
Ben Standig: Some Wizards Summer League news for ya. Chris McCullough told me he'll be in Vegas. Maybe all assumed, but no lock for 3rd year players.
If the franchise does start in 2017-18, the Clippers would push harder to have 2016 second-round pick David Michineau come to the United States to develop in their system rather than spend another season in France. At the very least, the hope is that Michineau will play in summer league in Las Vegas.
The Thunder will go its separate ways for the offseason, but one player will be back in an Oklahoma City uniform this summer. Rookie Domantas Sabonis plans to play for the Thunder's team at the Orlando Pro Summer League in July.
Sixers coach Brett Brown was asked about the possibility of Ben Simmons playing in the summer league. "I think it would be good if he did," Brown said. "But I wouldn't say it is a prerequisite. Still, his health and the judgment of his health rules the day. I don't know what that looks like when we are talking about the summer league."
The third surgery installed a synthetic material that is mostly indiscernible and believed to be the first in a pro basketball player. It requires a close view to notice scarring under his hair, the only visual remnants of his ordeal. It sure does not show in his play, which included returning for Gran Canaria’s last 10 games in April and May. “It was never a question of 'if,'” Kuric said. “It was just 'when.' Afterward, I’m just so much more thankful about everything. I don’t have bad days. Nothing bothers me. Somebody cuts you off in traffic. It’s no big deal. Whatever. Go ahead.
“Nobody here knows what happened, which is great. I don’t want people looking at me thinking, ‘Awwww, get him a basket please. Let him shoot, like the 13th guy coming off the bench when you’re down by 30.’" Instead, entering Tuesday's summer league action, Kuric has been the Suns "guy coming off the bench" for 16 points in 28 minutes of play … eight months after nearly dying.
Mike Richman: Shabazz Napier will play for the Blazers summer league team. Should get real minutes since he's the only roster guy who can play PG.
Alex Kennedy: Nate Wolters will play with the Washington Wizards' Summer League team in Vegas. He played with the Indiana Pacers in Orlando Summer League.
Alex Kennedy: Source: Brandon Paul will play with the 76ers' Summer League team in Las Vegas. He did well with the Hornets while in Orlando Summer League.
Alex Kennedy: D-League MVP Jarnell Stokes is playing for the San Antonio Spurs' Summer League team. He averaged 20.6 PPG (on 66.5 FG%), 9.3 RPG last year.
Mitchell Brown: BIG NEWS! Former @ODUMBB guard Trey Freeman is now playing with the Houston Rockets in the NBA Summer League. @WTKR3 #WTKRSports
Alex Kennedy: Quinn Cook to play for D-League Select Team in Summer League. He was D-League ROY (19.6 PPG, 5.4 APG, 3.9 RPG 1.2 SPG, 46.6% FG, 38.2% 3PT).
Tim Kawakami: Warriors announce that assistant Jarron Collins will coach their summer league team (if that hadn't already been announced, I'm not sure).
Alex Kennedy: Arinze Onuaku is playing Summer League with ORL. He has history with Vogel. He was with IND for camp/preseason in 2014-15, and SL last year.

Carmelo Anthony on playing for Lakers: I'm really going to enjoy it

Before we get you out of here, have to pepper you with a few Lakers questions. How are you going to look in purple and gold? Carmelo Anthony: [Laughs] That’s a good question. I think it’ll be fun. I’m really going to enjoy it. I sat and talked about the loyalty and learning the business of basketball so now being in this part of my life and my career it’s like I understand it. So I’m going into it with a different mindset and type of understanding with what’s at stake. What do we have to do, what do I have to do in order to make this work? I’m looking forward to it, to be honest with you.
For the naysayers, like me, who question how this Lakers roster will work over a long regular-season and into the playoffs, especially because you guys are historically old, why are we fools for doubting? Carmelo Anthony: To be honest, I think it’ll be too easy for you guys to be like, “Yeah, they’re going to be like this.” It’s too easy. You guys are baiting people to start a debate. It’s all about debate. We get it. We understand it. This is what you guys have to do. We understand that and we laugh at it and take it with a grain of salt and move on because everybody on the outside have their opinions about it and we’re the ones who know who we are. We know what we have to do. We know how we going to do it. Those are the things we have to deal with. So it’s easy for the outsiders or naysayers to give their overall perspective and it’s very opinionated. And ya’ll should do that. [Laughs] You should do that because it bring more viewers and bring more eyeballs and bring more conversation and more anticipation. If and when it does happen, winning a championship, that’s the fun part.
“We have to promote our sport culture, stop being afraid of being ambitious,” Fournier explained. “I want this to change and our team can do it. We are not afraid of anyone. My vision is to become as dominant as Spain has been in the last fifteen years. Tokyo is just our first final … I want to win Eurobasket 2022. This is not the time to stop. We have the opportunity to build a dynasty. “This team must grow every summer, relive the same emotions, reactivate what has made possible our success in Tokyo: putting aside the ego, fighting for each other, having this winning mentality. And starting over every year. It is an opportunity for our sport, but also something that can go beyond basketball, help sport in France. We can set an example for an entire generation.”
