If nothing else, Eugene Omoruyi would like to become the third-most popular basketball player to come out of Orangeville Prep. That alone is motivation in his journey to possibly make an NBA roster. “I’m just staying locked in and just taking my game and just coming out here and competing and staying focused,” Omoruyi said. “I just want to come in here and prove I belong in the (NBA), and that I belong playing this game. “I know I started (playing basketball) late. I just got to keep up my repetitions and how I approach the Mavs or the G League and get better. I just want to get better and prove I belong on a team and prove I deserve a spot.”
Brandon Knight had nine points in Monday’s opening loss, but seven fouls in just 26:20. After having not played last season, it was the 29-year-old’s first game in a year-and-a-half and there was rust. “A little bit. It’s summer league; it’s a different speed in summer league. It’s obvious if anyone takes time, 16, 18 months off, you’ve got to give them a little grace, throw them into a live NBA basketball action,” Ott said. “But yeah, overall, very good. He’s still trying to lead it, when to be aggressive, when to get off of it. He’s learning his teammates, too at the same time.”

Chris Mannix: There has been some reporting over the last couple of days about Damian Lillard interest in playing with Ben Simmons, about his interest in a long-term extension with the team. For whatever it’s worth… From Lillard side, I’m told, none of that’s true, that Lillard has not expressed any interest in acquiring Ben Simmons and that since he’s not eligible for a max extension, yet, there haven’t been those discussions either.
With the Los Angeles Lakers hovering above or below .500 for the first quarter of the season amid overlapping injuries and learning curves with a new roster, Lakers governor Jeanie Buss was asked how the organization would evaluate coach Frank Vogel in his third season. “Until we’re 100 percent healthy, I don’t think you can really make any judgment,” Buss told NBA.com at halftime of the Lakers-Celtics game on Tuesday at Staples Center.
Mark Medina: LeBron James: “I don’t get involved on how many minutes I played, or how many days off. I don’t confine to that. I think when you think negative thoughts and have negative energy, it just creeps into your mind. I feel as young as I’ve ever been.”
Callie Caplan: Nic Claxton on the situation where Luka Doncic drew his fifth tech of the year: “I didn’t say nothing to him, I don’t think. I just kind of got in his face and he took offense to it. He gave me a little shove, but I like that. That keep me going. That’s good.”
