"Analytics DON'T work at all. It's some crap that people that are really smart made up to get in the game. Bunch of smart guys who have never played. The NBA is about TALENT" - Charles Barkley #Truth
Although it would be great to get a chance to go down and see the process (I've been to a couple of the raps training camp exhibition games and loved them), I'm pretty meh about the whole thing from a fans perspective. Sure it's good for development but winning summer league is less meaningful than winning preseason games. Which is less meaningful than winning during the season, which is less meaningful than winning in the playoffs.
So in summary it has zero meaningfulness. In fact it might have a negative meaningfulness if anyone thinks that anything they see (wins or points or play) will translate into the NBA.
There's no reason not to enjoy it for what it is. Just don't make the mistake of thinking that anything you see will translate into NBA games.

Well... you're looking more at player development than wins.
There's money in the family and he has a degree from a top flight school, Seth Curry needs to get started on a real career. There is life after hoops, after all.
Remember he has more video on him than any of the undrafted players other than maybe Vander Blue. That sometimes makes scouts over analyze a player's flaws.

He could play SG in europe and not get exposed as much on defense, work a lot on his PG skills, athleticism and in about 3years play in the NBA as a backup PG
Alade aminu (pf, al farouqs brother) signed
Jordan Taylor (pg) signed.
Enough of the doom and gloom of tanking and no draft picks. It's time for summer league! Normally not such a highlight, but is anyone else interested to see how our untradable player has fared in the offseason? Has anyone seen any footage of him in the meantime? I'm not expecting PeKovic....but it would be nice to see if he's spent some time in the gym
ahhh...there is news!
"NBA Basketball Club Toronto Raptors's Jonas Valanciunas (21) after nearly six months of friendship proposed to his beloved Egle Ačaitei (24)."
you may have to translate the news but JV is off the market (dating-wise)
jordan taylor? former wisconsin player? really?
I think JV, TRoss, and Quincy all drive Maseratti's. Seems like a pact
i was pretty surprised Quincy had one, tbh.
