Summer League Rumors

TJ McBride: The Nuggets have announced their training camp roster. Adonis Arms and Kellan Grady went from Denver’s summer league roster to the training camp roster. Two-way contract players Collin Gillespie and Jack white make it 19 players heading out to San Diego.
How might these new players fit with the familiar faces? With training camp set to begin Sept. 24, here’s what The Chronicle is hearing about the situation from different sources within the organization: James Wiseman is aware of the areas of his game that need improvement and is “really starting to make some headway” this offseason following his debut at Las Vegas summer league. Though the Warriors still don’t know what kind of production to expect from the 21-year-old center, or which lineup combinations in which he fits best, they remain confident that he’s on track to reach his potential.
Detroit Pistons rookie Jaden Ivey on Monday was pictured in the gym with Los Angeles Lakers guard Russell Westbrook during an offseason workout session. The two players hit the court together in California, where Ivey has spent much of the offseason training. He is said to be healthy again after dealing with an ankle injury that limited him to just 38 minutes in the Las Vegas Summer League. Working with Westbrook was likely a great opportunity for Ivey to pull some knowledge and other tips from such an established player. Ivey often said he modeled his game after Westbrook as the two have similar playing styles with their athleticism and ability to score.
