After last year’s lockout wiped out summer league, the Raptors will be back in Las Vegas this July. Games will be played between July 13-22.
And Casey knows who the focus will be for the Raptors’ squad.
“It’s going to be Eddie Davis’s first summer league [where he is] the number one option,” Casey said. “His first year he had a summer league, and then he got hurt. This is a big summer for him as far as getting in the weight room, getting used to being the number one option in summer league.”
Davis is the only Raptor to have played in every game this year, but he has had a disappointing sophomore year, averaging just 6.0 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. The team could also include the Raptors’ first pick in this year’s draft and Valanciunas, if Lithuania fails to qualify for the Olympics in a qualifying tournament.
Casey also said the Raptors will invite their veterans to work out with the team.
