Grizzlies Player Development Coach Lloyd Pierce will serve as head coach. One of the key things to watch in these games will be which young point guard manages to make himself standout from the crowd amongst the trio of Selby, Wroten, and Pargo.  Also of interest will be if any of the big men can play well enough to garner a contract offer.

    Any info on Kevin Clark? 6’7″ guard peeks my interest.

  2. Grizzfan85No Gravatar says:

    Here is hoping Matt Janning lights it up from deep!!!

  3. Joe SmithNo Gravatar says:

    Sign Kevin pls. A year with Tony learning defense and we have a nice 6’7″ guard. I like

  4. JoelNo Gravatar says:

    First off, i read on espn that the Grizz and T-wolves are in trade talks atm, could someone get info on that ASAP please???

    Second is, isent Wroten 6’6″? Man, imagine if that kevin clark kid does well in the summer league, we would have a 6’6″ gaurd and a 6’7″ gaurd for back ups…. That is CRAZY!!!

    • Chris FaulknerNo Gravatar says:

      Grizz apparently looking at T-Wolves’ Wayne Ellington or Wesley Johnson with the possibility of trading Dante Cunningham or a sign’n'trade with OJ Mayo.

      I’d hate to lose Dante because of the energy he brings, but with Speights and Arthur signed I guess it makes sense.

      • Chris FaulknerNo Gravatar says:

        Ellington would definitely give us some more shooting off the bench. Bayless, Ellington, Quincy, Arthur, Speights is a nice 2nd wave.

        Looking forward to the summer league game today … It’d be nice to see Selby taking big steps forward this year.

    You can get an NBA.com All Access broadband pass for all Summer League games for $4.99 … and that automatically let’s you rewatch all the games you miss.

    Great for a schmuck like me whose computer screen is bigger than his TV screen :/

  6. J FalkNo Gravatar says:

    Selby and Wroten stood out to me in this first game…Pargo looked horrible from what I saw..

  7. TJNo Gravatar says:

    Janning looks like a deadeye shooter, he also played good team defense and came up with a few boards, could be a nice player to develop

  8. Anthony MorrisonNo Gravatar says:

    Selby looked good, and Wroten showed some really nice skills. If he can break into the rotation at some point this year, he will be a crowd favorite with his drives to the bucket and his highlight-reel passes.

  9. JoelNo Gravatar says:

    I liked the way Mitchell Watt started out the game, he was scoring at a good clip, his defense was good, and he seemed very adept at setting screens and moving without the ball

  10. J FalkNo Gravatar says:

    I agree, Watt and Janning both looked good…

    One of them could make the team, but it depends what the team does. If we trade Cunningham, Watt has a better chance of making the team. If we don’t, Janning could make it.

    Let’s wait to see what happens throughout the rest of these games before we sign them to a contract though.

    Still anxious to see a few of the other players get some action.

  11. ChrisNo Gravatar says:

    Agree with the assessments on the players. Selby’s 3-ball and overall D stood out. Wroten showed flashes and Pargo was about as good… fewer spectacular plays than the rookie but fewer caeless plays too. That said, if they stay even, give me the guy who’s 4″ taller with the higher up-side.

    Watt looked especially good early but then disappeared (then again, the whole team did after the 1st quarter). Jennings looked OK too but he and Watt will both need to be a lot better to make the roster.

    The bigger issue: I didn’t see ANYBODY I’d feel good about spelling Conley for 10 minutes a night. Selby looked good as the #1 scoring option against a TRULY HORRIBLE Knicks roster, but he was still too loose with the ball to be the #4 or #5 option against a real NBA team with our starters on the floor. That said, it was the first game out so one can’t read too much into any of it.

    • StevedNo Gravatar says:

      Lucky we signed Bayless eh? He will be a solid PG back-up to Conley. Selby is surprising me with his shooting so far this summer and is giving himself a good opportunity to be the 3rd PG (displacing Pargo) and a good shot to stick in the league.

      Wroten is looking like a promising back-up to Tony Allen.

      I’m really starting to like this team. Very good balance. Two good PGs, great defence and a bevy of talented bigs. Hopefully we can snag some draft picks from a sign-and-trade for Mayo.

      Conley/Bayless/Selby
      Allen/Wroten
      Gay/Q
      Zach/Arthur/Dante
      Gasol/Speights

      “I didn’t see ANYBODY I’d feel good about spelling Conley for 10 minutes a night”….

      I did….Wroten!!!! I know it’s summer league….i know it’s one game, but this kid is for real!!! BEST draft pick for Grizz since Pau. Potential off the charts!!!!!!

  12. JeremyNo Gravatar says:

    Wooten and Selby look good. Largo looks like off man. Plus report says gtizzlied will acquire wayne Ellington from twolves

  13. EvanNo Gravatar says:

    I agree that Selby and Wroten looked pretty good… I was really liking Watt’s athleticism, too.

  14. Mike NNo Gravatar says:

    Jon Kreft will make a huge impact when given the playing time. He dominated centers in college but Coach Hamilton wouldn’t keep him in. I watched U of Miami’s starting center, Reggie Johnson, swing at Kreft after he totally kept Johnson out of play. Still Hamilton only gave Kreft about 8 minutes of play. Kreft is physical and can run! Let’s hope he get’s the opportunity that he was denied at Florida State.
